Water Conditions: Good
Flows are at 223 cfs as of 9/2
On 9/7 the flows are scheduled to go up to 350+ cfs and will probably get dirty also due the Gorge flush
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fair-Good
All bets are off once the flush begins next tuesday. The high air temperatures are cooling off so fishing has been lasting into mid afternoon but I'm still sticking to the riffles and faster water. You may have noticed that we've reached the time of year that the timing of the hatches and the bugs has become very stable and should stay that way into September. The hatches are becoming more sporadic. The Trico and micro caddis start around 6 and the Trico spinner fall starts around 9 followed by sporadic midsized mayflies late morning . Evenings are male Trico emergence, caddis, midges and then the Aquatic Moths that are flying rapidly back and forth just above the water.
