Flows are on the rise with spring runoff in it's early stages. Weather has been hit or miss lately. It's gotten warmer, but this has increased the chances of afternoon thunderstorms. Stuff a rain jacket in your pack just in case. Warmer weather means Caddis, but that doesn't mean the fish will ignore mayflies and midges. Make sure you're running a multiple fly rig, whether you're fishing with dries, or with an indicator. If you're fishing an indicator rig, you won't need very much weight, but make sure you're running a couple flies in tandem. If you're fishing on the surface, make sure you run a nymph about a foot to a foot and a half below your dry, the weight of the bead should be sufficient to get it down.   Flows  64cfs
