Flows now down to very fishable levels at 165 cfs.  Warmer water has the fish spread out into the deeper sections.  You’ll find cooler water the closer you get to the dam, and fishing in the deep sections can produce some nice fish.  Take care when landing these fish after you play them for an extended period.  The sooner you can land them the better.  Try to minimize the trout’s “out of the water” time by having everything set up in advance for a photo if you choose to do so.  A few seconds too long out of the water at these temps can be a death sentence to a trout.  If you get here early enough, fish the shaded areas with midges and perch fry patterns.  Use enough weight to get your offerings down to the fish.  Crawdad patterns work great this time of year, along with #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal.
