NDOW stocked it this week for an event, and either the water took a very hard turn in warmth and were inable to find a cool hidey hole or they were shocked due to the tank/vs river water temp, and we've got some dead fish floating near the bridge. Nice flows, and clear. Being clear, start being a little more sneaky (yes, this is a fishing terminology :) Dead Drift Red Copper Johns, Golden stones, little yellow stones, zebra midges, or San Juans. Dry fly action should always include a dropper of a zebra midge, hare's ear, caddis pupa, make it a stimulator or grasshopper a cripple caddis or ant. It's almost time to start venturing up the further reaches, they'll hit s dry nicely early in the morning and late in the evening. Remember to release wilds (par marks (God's thumbprints along lateral line) and the brown trout tokeep the populations going!
Flows average: 106 cfs, about 70 cfs below median.
