The Elk and surrounding waters are all flowing clear and are sitting right around the average for this time of the year. ants are hatching good and there are even some blue wings hanging around still. The winter weather is here and the fishing will have slowed down but there is still the occasional fish being caught here and there.


Cutty fishing has been pretty good with a good amount of fish eating dry flies and nymphs but the bull trout fishing is really what has been producing. The bull trout have been rambunctious, to say the least, down in this neck of the woods. They're still trying to gulp down the occasional small cutty when it's being fought. So streamer fishing is the way to go for these guys and let me say, the bigger the better.
