Water Conditions: GOOD

The road once you leave the pavement it is very muddy.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: GOOD

Look for the fish to be sluggish with the cold water until about 11 am. then the bite is good for about 2-3 hours. The BWO hatches are day to day with Midge hatches every day. Most of the fish are plastered to the bottom, you will need to bring the flies to them. Fish the edges and slow moving water on the bottom and look for sippers in the back currents to try your dries.

#18-20 WD-40 in Grey or Black, #16-18 Pheasant Tail, #16-18 Copper John, #14-18 Hare??s Ear, #14-18 Zug Bug and #16-18 RS2 Emerger
