Fishing Report & Conditions: Fair-Good

Crowds are decreasing slightly, but hatches are becoming inconsistent with rising water temperatures – Monitor the water temperature to avoid fish fatality. Mornings are best; big lake midges up near the dam are consistent. PMDs are active mid-morning, with sporadic caddis activity throughout the day. Evenings see caddis and male Trico activity.
