The flows on SBC are still holding on strong at @175 CFS as of right now, which is higher than most other rivers in the area. The nymph bite has been nothing short of ridiculous through Walker Ranch, with fish being caught on everything from big Pheasant Tails to tiny BWO nymphs. Look for the water below Gross to come down sometime within the next three weeks, and the dry fly bite to pick up with it; as long as the weather holds, adult BWO's and even some larger dries should catch a few on the surface once the water is down. Eldo State Park is seeing some low water, but the fish are still around and huddled into deeper pools and runs. Throwing a Dry Double Dropper or two fly Nymph rig is the way to go, with BWO's, Midges, and small attractor nymphs. The flat land portion of SBC doesn't provide much holding water this time of year, so be sure to pick and choose your spots and really work the deepest water you can find.

Still good above Rollinsville as well. Try a shallow two fly nymph rig or dry dropper on the warmer days. Just fished it the first weekend on October and caught a bunch of fish, some pushing the 16 inch mark. Grand Slam stroll possible in SBC at Rollinsville.
