The flows have come up to 75cfs and the EW has really picked up since the larger release of water. Lot's of perch fry drifting in the river and #14 Punk Perch as the upper proved to be deadly on a tandem nymph rig dead drifted in the deeper runs according to Drifters very own Doug R. I would also not pass up the opportunity to toss a Loeberg or Spruce-A-Bu into one of the larger holes during early mornings or late afternoons. You gonna get ripped! Doug is also reporting that there is some killer dry fly activity with midges in the morning followed up by clouds of bwo's around lunch.

The rainbows and browns are downright obese displaying little wear and tear after a long winter with low flows. We are really looking forward to fishing here this spring and if you want a shot at one of the best tailwaters this state has to offer, give us a call and well put you on these "footballs with tails!"

The real time flow data is posted on our fish'N conditions page for your convenience. We like the release to be at least above fifty cfs to fish here.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.
