Flows Have Remained Stable

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


Flows have remained very stable for this time of year. Nymphing has been accounting for most of the catches, but some good midge hatches are taking place on the reservoir and they are flying down to the river to deposit their eggs. You will find some great dry fly action at times here when this happens. There is a good amount of water for wading and crossing in most areas of the river.

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, Eggs: Tangerine Red Flash, Dead Egg, Tangerine Opaque, Flamingo.
