Matt here and pretty pumped for the local fly game. The Tenmile river showed signs of an early year about a month back when the air temps were way above average and the rivers were very low. Since then colder nights and rain has put mother nature back on course.
I spent four hours on the Tenmile last night and lets just say the river is fully awake. Many smaller stocked fish were splashing around chasing emerging caddis and sporadic mayflies. This activity was focused on the smoother water with some pace to it.
The larger fish were sitting below the riffles in between the nymping runs and dry fly pools. The bigger fish did not have to show their noses and were gorging the middle water column hard. Many small fish on top and some nicer browns below. The Tenmile is in great shape with both flow and water temp. GET OUT THERE!
