Report Date:

Water Conditions:
Flows are perfect! Temps in the mid 50's

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
Excellent! Make sure your fly is floating high, been seeing a lot of rejections cause the fly was sitting in the film instead of riding on top. Fishing is great in the morning, til about noon. Things pick back up in the evening til dark. Serious dry action at dusk. Mostly mayflies.
