Flows continue to hold true at 300 cfs and the fish are spread out. It can be epic on some days for large fish and other days you have to work for them. That is how spring fishing goes sometimes as the fish are transitioning from winter to spring. Some nice ones are being taken on soft eggs, midges, assassins, and SJ worms, and SD Crawlers. Fish are holding in the softer sections and tailouts of the deeper pools. Make sure you are getting your flies down near the bottom to get into the big ones.  Otter eggs in all colors, #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal have been great patterns to hang.
