Happy spring to all. The weather is warming and I'm starting to dream about soft water fishing.

Has anyone spent time on the Straight River? I have read good things about it and have been thinking of spending a couple of days there this spring.

Any tips or suggestions on stream sections, fly selection etc would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

When I was going to college in Fargo I would flyfish the Straight. The best time is during the hex hatch just before or into the dark. Otherwise use buggers or real big nymphs along the banks.
