Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Good

Flows are at 84 cfs as of 10/2

Water temperatures are dropping fast.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fair

Smoke conditions have improved but we expect to see more bad days over the next week or two.  

I'm not getting the reports as often due to the conditions, so I'll try my best. It's definitely less crowded now, especially during the week. Look for the open gates and talk to the people that are already out there. Tricos are on their last legs so besides the midges the main hatch is a scattering of small mayflies throughout the day. Remember we're getting into that time of year when more and more lake fish are moving in so don't be afraid to throw some bigger midges and perch patterns. The hopper action is almost done with just a few hanging around.
