Water Conditions: Excellent

The warming spring weather is instigating nice hatches and the fish are very active!
Roads and gates are wide open.
Flow is up to 61 CFS but water is still clear.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Excellent

There are solid hatches of midges in the am, followed by BWO's mid-day and caddis by the afternoon (on Warm days). Some great dry fly opportunities can be had most days.
