Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Good

Flows have come down to 85 cfs as of 11\12

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good-Very Good

 It's getting a little more crowded but there are still plenty of places to hide. Flows are now down to winter levels, making for easier wading and being able to reach more areas. Flows are good, temperatures mid-day are pleasant, lots of flying insect to be seen. Mornings it's midges, later in the morning is craneflies, caddis and BWO. Evenings are caddis and midges. If you're looking for dry fly action midday BWO hatches can be very good, especially if its overcast. Reports from up by the dam have not been as good as downstream.
