Water conditions: Great

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

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

The BWO hatches are still strong along with a big Midge hatch. Look for the BWO hatch to start around noon.

Recommended Flies:

- NYMPHS
#18 Tiger or Zebra Midges, #16-18 Prince Nymph, #14-18 Hare??s Ear, #18 Pheasant Tail, #18 Kyle??s Super Flash PT and #18 Rock Worm.

- DRIES
#14-16 Stimi, #14-16 Royal Wulff, #16-18 Cripple BWO and Hatchmaster BWO

Guides Hint: I know the recommendations haven't change in 8 weeks. If it works don't fix it. On warmer days, the average angler that leaves the store is returning 3-4 hours later with 9-12 fish landed, one over 19 inches, at Upper O, Hot Creek, and Lower O with the Res a close second. The quality of t he fishing this Winter has been uncanny.
