Flows Came Down

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


 Flows came down to 350 cfs over the last week but are up again at 460. Once flows stabilize here the BWO’s should start coming off again in the afternoons in better numbers. Flows are too high for wading right now, so drift boat fishing is the best war to locate and access the best river spots. Some midges hatching in the mornings and streamers which imitate wounded bait fish have been good bets for getting into the larger fish. When the mayfly hatch is happening, try switching to our #16 Punk Perch and Crystal Leech just prior to and after the peak of the hatch. Best flies for these area have been #10 Loebergs in all colors, #8 Spruce-a-bus in light and dark, #16 Punk Perch, #14 Crystal Leech, #18 Assassin Light, #16 San Juan Worm Red, #18 Blue Winged Olive, #22 Parachute Midge, #18 Broken Back Copper Tiger Midge, and #18 Crystal Caddis Larva Olive Dubbed-Black.
