Water Conditions: Poor
Flows are at 31 cfs as of 2/1
Fishing conditions and Hatches: Poor-Fair
Back to bad news, 395 just reopened but access to the water is tough. Good news temperatures are suppose to be mid to upper 40's with nightime in the teens and the flows are up to 30. Good midge hatches mid-morning on and mayflies midday throughout the afternoon. Both the mayflies and the midges are extremely small. Attractor patterns are working including worms and slush eggs. Mainly small mayfly nymphs but larger nymphs like Pheasant Tails that also imitate caddis larva are working also. Small streamers were also working. Now for the bad news. Starting this weekend, they are calling for overnight temperatures in the single digits and highs in the 30's.
