Water Conditions: Excellent
Flow is 40 cfs on 7/4. Flows should be mellowing out now unless we get really hot temps or rain. Water is fairly clear.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Excellent

The warm weather we have been seeing is bringing strong hatches of caddis. Tricos are also present in the a.m. with PMD\\\'s and Yellow Sallies mid morning into early afternoon. Primarily Caddis throughout the afternoon. Nymphing is still taking more and bigger fish, but dry fly fishing is producing with yellow sallie patterns, PMD\\\'s and caddis.
