About 50 minutes upriver. This is also relatively easy wading with small gravel, but bigger water than the upper Upper section (during high water times we typically opt to float fish rather than wade this area). Again, dry fly action can be excellent during the hopper season (mid-January through mid-March) and then afterwards as the mayfly action gets going, from mid-March on. There are 3 main beats we fish here, all of which provide access to some of the spring fed lagunas or small spring creeks that can provide for good dry fly action for larger fish. Sight fishing is often possible in these lagunas. Again, a fair amount of walking (1-2 miles) over easy terrain is required to best take advantage of the fishing options in this area. River crossing can be difficult, especially during higher water conditions.
