Despite the fact that flows have been eratic and the water has been generally murky this entire year so far(because of the work being done on the Echo dam), the lower Weber river has been kicking out some nice fish fairly consistently. The most productive flies as of late have been stoneflies in the size 12 range. The staple flies(hairs ear, pheasant tail, sow bug, scuds) have also been decent producers so far this year. Over the last month or so the fish have been hitting streamers in the early morning fairly well. I expect this to continue and pick up as we move into Fall and the Brown Trout spawn. We have also been hooking up with quite a few Suckers this year in the lower section. Some big ones well over 24” with the average being around 18″-20”. The Cuthroat population also seems to be growing in this lower section of the river. We have caught more Cutthroats this year than any other year I can remember.
