Water Conditions:
Clear for now , but record temps this weekend will kick off the big melt .

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
Fishing has been fair above the bridge , but some what better from the Crowley monument to the lake . Warmer days have been producing some exciting surface action with small caddis . When the runoff starts forget the dry action and use bright and flashy nymphs off the bottom.

Recommended Flies:
NYMPHS- #16 Copper John in Green or Copper, #12-18 Flashback P.T. 's. , San Juan Worms ,# 14-16 Prince Nymphs ,#18-22 Olive WD40's , #16 Caddis Pupa , #12-16 Blood Midges

Guide's Hint: PLEASE DO NOT FISH FOR SPAWNING FISH OR WADE IN THEIR REDDS!!!
