Water Conditions: Excellent

Flow is 37 cfs as of 6/12
The creek is fishing perfect. If it rains on top of snow again the water will turn brown. Not a bad thing. We need another good flush of the "Creek" to bring back a healthy Stonefly and P.M.D. population.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Extra Excellent

There are solid hatches of midges in the am, followed by BWO's mid- day, along with Yellow Sallies a few P.M.D's and caddis by the afternoon (on Warm days). Some great dry fly opportunities!!
