Owyhee River Fly Fishing
Owyhee Fly Fisher Specializes In Trophy Owyhee River Brown Trout
The Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife has estimated insect counts (please, don’t ask us how they do this) at 26,000 bugs per square meter on the Owyhee tailwater! Although this is great news for the river, it can be an enigma for fishermen, as anglers are continually putting their fly up against the real thing. The Owyhee is legendary for “masking” hatches, so it is seldom ‘easy’. Are those big browns taking the adult, the emerger, the cripple or are they even gorging on BWO’s at all? These questions – and many more – can frustrate fly fishermen new to this fishery.
Here’s where the experience of the OWYHEE FLY FISHER can save you precious time on the water. Dan Bofenkamp (Head Guide) has been fly fishing the Owyhee since 1985, making him a true veteran. He is passionate about the river, its fish, the native wildlife, area history and the entire eco-system. Dan is the perfect guide for getting the most out of your time on the Owyhee.
A day with Dan at the OWYHEE FLY FISHER can make the difference between a frustrating outing and having the time of your life. A guide is an investment in knowledge, and any time on the water with Dan is well worth the expenditure.
