Water is off color, and high below Hot Creek due to recent rains. Flows are still running above normal in all areas at 100cfs. The browns will be moving up from Crowley to spawn as the weather cools. Attractor patterns, & streamers are good calls for migratory trout. Drifters Crawlers, crystal eggs, San Juan Worms, crystal leeches, & Assassins are my go to nymphs below an Under-Cator. Access is fine, with no snow or ice present.

The section upstream from the Benton Bridge is open year around with special regulations. Seasonal closures, and angling restrictions apply downstream from the bridge, check regulations before fishing in this section.
