Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Good

Flows have come down to 85 cfs as of 11\5

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good-Very Good

 This weekend should drive more people down to less frigid conditions. Flows are now down to winter levels, making for easier wading and being able to reach more areas. Same old report, except that the fishing is getting better and better. Flows are good, temperatures mid-day are pleasant, lots of flying insect to be seen and nobody around. Mornings is midges, later in the morning is craneflies, caddis and BWO. Evenings are caddis and midges. Reports from up by the dam have not been as good as downstream.
