Water Conditions: Good
Flows are at 228 cfs as of 7/15
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good-Very Good
The hatches are decent, no big bugs coming off but lots of Midges, Tricos, Caddis and Tiny BWO. The only real downside is the heat but perfect for early starts and late finishes. The summer hatches maybe small but big nymphs (Pheasant Tail, Hares Ears and Prince Nymphs) #12-14 are still working. Key on the riffles and against the outside of the slow bends with terrestrials. The Trico and micro caddis start around 6 and the Trico spinner fall starts around 9 followed almost immediately by the Tiny BWO and Craneflies. Evenings are male Trico emergence, caddis, midges and then the Aquatic Moths that are flying rapidly back and forth just above the water.
