The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions: Fair flows are bouncing around now at 50cfs as of 10/17.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good with the res as low as it is the flows are now down to the double digits and will probably remain that way as the ranchers in Nevada no longer need as much water.
Nymphing small mayfly patterns until about noon. Try some terrestrials from mid-day until the evening when there are some sporadic Caddis hatching.
