Water conditions: Great

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

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

The afternoon fishing has been superb. 20 Fishing with a dry dropper is the best choice. One of the best things about the gorge is how simplistic it can be using a size #14 dry fly with a #16-18 nymph dropper trailed behind is all you need. Some caddis are also around in the late morning. Make sure to be aware that Snakes are showing up. Use caution on the in/out hike and don't forget extra water for the hot weather conditions.

Recommended Flies:

-NYMPHS-
#18 Tiger or Zebra Midges, #16-18 Prince Nymph, #14-18 Hares Ear, #16-#18 Pheasant Tail, !6-#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 ,#14-#18 Elk Hair or Parachute Caddis (Tan)

Guides Hint: 3wt rods and a wading staff is great for trekking around in the gorge.
