Conditions : Big Lost River: With flow out of Mackay Dam a bit below 300 cfs, wading is much safer. A few western green drakes and golden stones are likely still around, so their life cycle patterns should be in that fly box. The most effective dry patterns, however, will be those for terrestrial insects. Hopper patterns in sizes large enough not to be sunk by a suspended nymph pattern of choice should be particularly effective

About: - Below Mackay Reservoir is where the Big Lost River becomes a quality tailwater fishery.  As the river flows toward the town of Mackay the scenery changes dramatically.  Present along the river are tall cottonwoods and lush grassland.  The waters in this section can be crystal clear and much of the river is seldom wider the 20-30 feet across.  Seasoned anglers favor light tippets and many love the finesse required to fish the river.  Fishing conditions are pretty much predicated by the fluctuation in water flow.
