In Town:

The in town stretch of the “Unc” is still fishing well. Traditional nymph/attractor nymph patterns and small streamers often work well here. 

3-5wt rods with matching floating lines are a good fit.

Paco-Chu-Puk:

The best fishing will likely happen with small midges. Don’t forget to bring an assortment of small leeches, scuds and san juan worms.

Use 9-10ft 5-6wt rods and reels with a good drag to handle the large fish in this stretch of the river.
