Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Good

Flows are at 102 cfs as of  4/1

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:  Good-Very Good

Baetis hatches are picking up again and now go from about 1 until 3 or 4. The best action has been from 10 or 11 until 3 or 4 and the last couple of hours have been very good. The Grannom caddis hatch is pretty much over but there are other caddis starting to get active.  The bigger Stoneflies are fading, don't expect to see many adults but it doesn't matter, the fish will probably still eat a big stimulator.
