Flows up slightly to 12 cfs now with weed growth prevalent.  Latest rain and snow added a little bit more water here.  Target the open lanes between them for the best success.  Different day to day here as more weeds hit the surface and begin to choke up the open water.  Dry fly fishing along the open stretches has been productive.  Still fun with hoppers fished on a 9′ leader. #18 mayflies, #18-22 midges, #20 Brassies, and egg and SD worm patterns have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout.
