Not much has changed on the river this past week, the temps are still good, the flows are still around 20 cfs. There is still relatively little angler traffic but the anglers who are going down there are doing pretty well. We also have started getting some good reports on streamers along with the usual small midge patterns and caddis nymphs. The stretch below the bridge seems to still be producing good numbers of browns in the 10 to 15 inch range with a few around 17 or 18 inches. The Mile section is still producing some nice rainbows but not too many browns. Patterns to try include: zuddlers, moal leeches, jj special, sculpzilla, fox's poopah, z-wing caddis, zebra midge, dark lord, flashback emerger and miracle nymph. The West is of course still running very low and clear but the fishing hasn't been too bad. You'll want to be in stealth mode up there so as not to spook the fish too much. Spin anglers are using panther martins and rooster tails, bait anglers are going with salmon eggs and mini crawlers. Fly anglers are still doing well with hoppers, ants, humpy's, royal wulffs on top and prince nymphs, pheasant tails, copper johns and hare's ears underneath. www.kenssport.com (760) 932-7707
