Flows have been relatively stable for a the previous week. 200-250cfs is a good release to wade the wild trout section. Drift boat trips have been better with the lower flows. Bite picks up with the mayfly hatch, & warmer water temps afternoon. Still a decent BWO hatch coming off with a few stoneflies showing. Streamers like Spruce-A-Bu’s, Loebegrs, and Crystal Leeches used with a heavy sinking tip line are the right call under these conditions. Properly weighted nymph rigs with standard; or parallel Assassins, flashback pheasant tails, and parallel punk perch can get you grabs below an Under-Cator.
