The levels are really nice right now-currently at 237cfs.  Flows can vacillate frequently throughout the spring/summer as irrigation demands on pastures in Nevada change.  It has been crowded here; but the “catching” remains consistent overall. Look downstream from the Miracle Mile to get less pressured, fresh water. Last falls planted rainbows are amazingly “rotund”, & very healthy. At these release rates, you can find pods of rainbows in the deeper riffles especially during the emergencies. Warmer weather can trigger some solid midge, & mayfly activity. Assassins, Drifters Crawlers, crystal eggs, broken back midges. Tugging streamers like Spruce-A-Bu’s and Loebergs in the larger pools can get a bad Leroy brown to come out and attack.
