Stream Level: Current flow is 542CFS

Water Temp: 43 Degrees

Clarity: High and a little off color

Fishing Overview: Be careful wading in the higher flows. Water temps came a little down from yesterday and are steady at 43. With the drop in water temp, expect a drop in trout activity as well.

Specifics and Tips: Smaller sculpin patterns swung through the tailouts of rifles and pools. Stoneflies from sz.8-12 were coming off this past week, midges are coming off throughout the day, with some BWO activity towards dusk. With higher flows and water being off color, be prepared to throw sub-surface flies, but if the brownies are rising, don't be afraid to toss some stones, midges, or BWOs their way.

Hatches: Midge black, and cream- sz.18-24
Stonefly black- sz.8-10

Conservation Note: If you see trash in the streams pick it up help keep our treasured streams clean and full of trout.
Not having a barb on the hook will help with quick releases, and decrease the chances of gill damage to the fish.
