Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions:  Fair-Good

Flows are down to to 50 cfs as of  10/30

Fishing conditions and Hatches: Good

Nighttime temperatures are in the 10's- 20's with daytime in the 60's as it slowly warms up. Even though it warms up some over the weekend I wouldn't be in a hurry to get on the water.

Both the mayflies and the midges are extremely small.  Perch fry patterns should be working. The perch fly patterns can be stripped or dead drifted under an indicator. If under the indicator and you're not getting grabs, try lifting and dropping the indicator to give the streamer movement. A lot of smaller fish are getting caught but there are plenty of big fish too. Attractor patterns are working including worms and slush eggs.
