Water conditions:

Water Temps: Mid 60's.

Flow: 45 CFS. This is a permanent flow required to be maintained by LADWP.

Now is the perfect time for the gorge, warm and cozy. Dry fly fishing has been good, evenings being a good time to catch the caddis.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Very good to excellent

Nettles are almost gone but watch out for even the dead ones. They still bite! Because of lower temps snakes have seemed to have disappeared also.

Recommended Flies:

Early morning try small Crowley midge patterns under tiny indicator or dry fly, as well as spent trico and caddis patterns. Late morning go to BAETIS!, hoppers, ants and beetles. Evening- caddis, leeches and buggers Early morning sizes #18-#22s. Late morning sizes #18-#22s for baetis,ants and beetles,#12-#14s for hoppers. Evening sizes caddis #20-#22s,leeches and buggers #12-14.

Guides Hint: Try fishing downstream presentations any chance you get. Because of low flows and clarity of water, your usual upstream casts and cross stream casts have a tendency to spook fish several feet in every direction.
