WHITE RIVER Rainbow trout are biting live worms and worm imitators. Brown trout are moving into spawning areas, but many remain on the gravel bars downriver. They are biting rainbow trout pattern lures and live sculpin.

NORFORK TAILWATER Some nice midge and sporadic caddis hatches have provided limited top water action. The most productive flies have been small midge patterns (sizes 18, 20, 22) like ruby midges, root beer midges, zebra midges (black or red with silver wire and silver bead) and soft hackles (sizes 14, 16) like the Green Butt. Egg patterns have been productive. Double-fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small bead headed nymph (zebra midge, Copper John or pheasant tail) suspended 18 inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm (hot fluorescent pink or cerise size 10). The fishing is better in the morning.

SPRING RIVER The Spring River is flowing at 310 cfs, which is below the average of 350 cfs. The trout have been biting well on olive, brown or black woolly buggers, Y2Ks and large nymphs. Most brown trout are being caught on olive or brown woollies on a slow strip upstream.
