Water Conditions:

The flows are at 93 cfs as of 6/9 and temps are holding steady at around 49 degrees

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

The fishing is slow but fair in the afternoon and late evenings. Midges and Caddis hatches are going off early. You would be best to throw midges and caddis around 10am to 1pm. Yellow Sallies and PMD 's are the ticket for catching fish in the afternoon and evening hours. Fishing with a dry dropper rig is recommended. Flourocarbon tippet is almost a must for spooky fish. Recommended Flies:

#18 and #20 zebra / blood midges, #18 and #20 stonefly nymphs and caddis larvae (tan or gold) #16 and #18 Elk hair caddis ( browns, yellows, and olives). Stimulators: #16 and #18 olives or yellow and E.C. C addis #16 and #18 in olives. Outrigger Yellow Sally #16-18

Guides Hint: Concentrate on slowest slicks possible. With cold temps fish are not moving too far out of their lanes. So make several drifts to land these finicky fish.
