Ruby River Fishing Report

Ruby River

Current Conditions:

The Ruby is a good option right now with runoff beginning on area freestone rivers. Keep an eye on the hydrograph to ensure it's below 350 cfs for wading. This can be a great time to swing streamers and target larger fish. Worms, caddis patterns 

The Month Ahead:

The Ruby should be a nice option in June and there will be plenty of pmds and yellow sallies to get fish excited. If flows are below 400cfs at the dam and stable or on the drop this should be a green light. Nymphing worms trailed by pmd emergers is always productive but swinging streamers can provide some explosive takes.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:


The Ruby is a good option all summer long. Once we get into the heart of the summer the river sees more traffic on the public sections and fishing can be less consistent but you can still have some banner days.
