The end of August is a notable time of the year on the Pit as hatches of Isonychia perk up the bite. A good fly to throw this week is a #10 Black A.P. or a black #6 rubber legs. Don't discount small midge patterns in #18.

The Pit River is a great choice any time, any day. Best fishing has been in Pit #3, but don't discount the waters in #4, #5. You will do best high sticking and short lining the fast slots, drops and pockets. Look for areas where water is squeezed and put your nymphs down fast and deep. That means 1 to 3 SSG split shot.
Anglers fishing nymphs are doing best.
