Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions:  Good

Flows are at 140 cfs as of 6/11

Fishing conditions and Hatches: Fair-Good

The flows are up near normal, for now. Midges and BWOs are incredibly inconsistent so be prepared for both. Midges are all day long but mainly in the morning while the BWOs are 12-1 and tiny PMDs(?) in the evening. The reservoir is experiencing a Daphnia "explosion" so break out the #32 Daphnia patterns or move downstream away from the dam. Caddis are probably the most consistent, try skating an Elk Hair Caddis or fish Caddis Crawlers through the riffles. Scuds and Damsel nymphs in the slow water. Still crowded but not like it had been.
