Water Conditions: Excellent

Water flow has been down to about 40 then back up to 87 as of 3/9. It will take a day or two at constant flow for fishing to return to normal.
Cold water temps early then coming up a little midday.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

Probably pretty slow on the dry fly side of things until the snow passes and temps warm up but nymphing is still producing some excellnt fish. Midges hatching early (10 am) for now then Stone flies and Baetis after the snow goes and warmer weather moves in especially down towards the NV border.

Recommended Flies:

Zebra Midges #18-#22, WD-40's #20-#24, Golden Stone #6-#10, Pheasant Tails #16-#18, Para-Adams #18-#20
