Marker Description: The Big Wood River is named for the cottonwood trees on its banks that fall into the river. The downed trees make good cover for trout. During high-water years, melting snow pack and heavy rains can cause the river to be unfishable until late June. Dry summer months increases irrigation usage, affecting fishing conditions in the lower sections.

The Wood River is excellent trout water and the stretch just above Magic Reservoir is some of the best. Look for baetis and midges for surface action. A parachute blue winged olive with a size 18 RS2 green emerger will work the best over a baetis hatch. If the trout are rising to midges try a black white winged adult midge size 20 with a black zebra midge pupa as a dropper about 18 inches down from the adult.
