Flows Are at Optimal Levels

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


Flows are at optimal levels for this time of year. There isn’t much in the forecast in the way of snow, but some cooler nights will punch things into gear around here. The algae bloom from Bridgeport Reservoir seeped into the river over the last few weeks, but the river is starting to clean up nicely. The further from the dam you get, the clearer the water gets.

Best Flies: B100FB – 18, 20; Crystal Copper Tiger Midge -16; Crystal Zebra Midge – 16, 18; Punk Perch Light and Dark – 14, 16; Parallel Punk Perch Light and Dark; Crystal Leech – 12, 14, 16; Agent Orange 12, 14, 16; Parallel Agent Orange – 14, Spruce-a-bu Dark and Light.
