Well, if all you EW fans are watching the flows at all you’ll notice they’re down quite a bit, to around 550! This is pretty good news for the river! We haven’t had too many reports yet but the ones we’ve had are starting to look up. This flow is definitely a better flow for anglers. The water could fluctuate quite a bit for a while but I think as long as it stays below around 600 the fishing should be pretty good. The reports we have received the anglers did the best with midge and caddis nymph patterns under indicators. There’s also a good number of rainbows being caught, many of which probably came from the reservoir through the dam. Patterns to try include: zebra midge, flashback emerger, rainbow warrior, prince, dark lord, fox’s poopah, buckskin caddis, 3 wire caddis.
