Not much has changed here aside from a couple of larger trout in the higher sections of the river.  The river has a good amount of catchable size rainbows all over, but more fish below the bridge.  Flows at 117 cfs.  A few larger than average sized trout in the deeper sections.  Target the deeper pools and riffle water that leads into them and you can get into some fun action fishing small nymphs, dry/droppers, and small streamers.  Look for rising fish in the mid-morning and later in the afternoons along the slower moving sections.  The foam lines have been where it is at.  Throwing stimulators and hopper patterns in the foam can entice fish to take on the surface.
