Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Fair

Flows are at 393 cfs as of 10/8

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Poor- Fair

Sorry but I don't have anything new right now. Water is still high but is much cleaner. DWP has reported that the flows will stay high until the middle of next month, there have been all sorts of rumors why, but I'll leave that alone. I fished it a few days ago and was not thrilled. The water has cooled off, not sure if that had an affect but it was very tough with few hatches. Scattered midges and caddis with a few Baetis early afternoon.
