Flows holding steady at 75 cfs above Bishop Creek. Air temps will be in the low 40’s to mid 50’s here depending on storm activity. Nothing forecasted for this area in the way of storms until the weekend. Great BWO hatches going on in the afternoons. You will see a few fish in the tailouts of the pools and in some of the deeper pockets of water. Some pools are holding more fish than others. Stay well upstream of these deep pools to avoid spooking fish while casting streamers. Getting those streamers down on the bottom is very important, as they are holding tight to the bottom. Spruce-a-bu, Loebergs, Agent Orange, Punk Perch, and Crystal Leeches are all getting takes.

This fishery remains open year around. Special regs from the footbridge at Pleasant Valley campground to the fishing monument 4.7 miles downstream.


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.
