Flows are on the rise here and now at 458 cfs but hopefully not at a blowout pace. It can be epic on some days for large fish and other days you have to work for them. After these late winter storms pass through and high pressure builds again we will see the water temps start to warm up. 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.
