We are awaiting the migratory rainbows to enter the river in good numbers. As the weather continues to get cooler this will trigger the fall spawners to start getting ready for their move. The section from the Benton Crossing Bridge down to the fishing monument is now closed.  Flows have decreased  to 87 cfs. The cooler water has prompted the fish to feed in the deeper runs now and target nymphs and egg imitations.  Look for rising fish in the late-morning and afternoons as the daytime temperatures climb. They will be found in the slower eddys around the bends in the river.
