No snow or ice here currently; however expect some arctic air temps, & heavy traffic for a while. Fishing has been fair/good for planted rainbows. The lake level is a very fishable 4384′. Hit the transition into the lake or small river section below the powerhouse using dry/dropper rigs. The short river section has been best for numbers of smaller rainbows, & browns. Little, or no hydro power generation recently. Stimulators, hi-vis para BWO’s, or hi-vis caddis may be used as the upper fly-use crystal olive caddis larva, flashback PT’s, Assassins, broken back or crystal tiger & zebra midges as your dropper bead head nymph. “Freeze Tubing” the section from the launch ramp, up to the inlet section is the best. Streamers like Loebergs, Agent Orange, Crystal leeches, & Spruce-A-Bu’s will get you into some nice browns, & larger bows in the rez proper. Use a full sinking, or heavy sink tip line to get down 10-15 feet quickly. You can also fish “Crowley midge style” in the rez near the drop-offs. Fish chironomid patterns below an Under-cator. Gillies, broken back midges, crystal emergers & pupa patterns. Tiger & zebra midges are always a solid choice for your larva pattern.
