Conditions : Big Lost River: Flow out of Mackay Dam was raised a little recently, but at slightly over 400 cfs wading is a bit difficult. Western green drakes are finished, but terrestrial insects are coming on. Fishing has been somewhat slow, but nymphing with PMD patterns is a good method for some success. The same for presenting patterns simulating aquatic or washed-in worms (SJ worm, medium sized woolly buggers). Flows will drop as irrigation demands diminish and calls for storage in the reservoir increase. Such should make for better wading conditions during the trico activity later this summer..

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.
