Water Conditions:
The water is holding around 80 cfs. as of 7/27 Water temps are warm averaging around 70 degrees . When the water gets to 70 degrees please respect the fishery and DO NOT FISH HERE.The fish will eat because they have to , but they will not survive even the best release method.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
Due to high temps please do not fish here . We have heard of some fun fishing at Green Creek lately you might consider fishing there mid day when the air temps are high with some standard "Dry Dropper" rigs. Stimulators with a Prince nymph, or anything similar should work well. Another alternative is the West Walker River , located about 20-30 minutes north of Bridgeport.

Recommended Flies:
NYMPHS: Cream Caddis Pupa #16, #18-22 Zebra Midge, Tim's Olive PT Cruzer#16-18, Crystal Caddis Larva#18-20, #12 Gummy Stones, #10 San Juan Worm, #16-1 8 Anatomical PMD, #16 Nori's Caddis Pupa,

DRIES :Goddard Caddis#18-22, Outrigger Caddis Olive#18, Harrops PMD Dun #18, Ostrich Caddis Emerger #22, Becks' Sulfur Emerger #18-20, CDC PMD Emerger, CDC Female Trico Emerger #22-24, CDC Female Trico Dun#20-24, Elk Hair Caddis Tan#14-18, Tan Stimis #12-16, Outrigger Yellow Sally #16

Guides Hint: Look for the deeper pockets of water and concentrate on those for the larger fish. Try to send your flys into the hole BEFORE your indicator to get a better drift, or simply ditch the indicator and watch your leader to detect a grab.
