Water Conditions:

The water in the reservoir is very clear, and levels are high which makes for perfect fishing conditions here!

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Excellent

High water and fish concentrated at the inlets.
Fishing is as good as it gets! Rainbow bay is a great spot to fish early. If you are lucky, you can fish dry callibeatis patterns in the morning. Indicator fishing has been producing best in the weed channels. Make sure to check your flies are clean if your not getting grabs.

Recommended Flies:

Damsels in yellow or light green #14 - #16. Callibaitis Poxyback, Hares Ears, Pheasant tails all in #14 - #16 Scuds, Waterboatmans, Punk Perch all in #14 - #16 as well.

Midges- Zebras, Copper Tiger, Chartruese in #12 - #18 Tan or Gold in #14 Stripping Doublebunnys, Punk Perch, Olive or brown Wooleybuggers, Mohair Leeches (small) in brown, orange, or olive is another highly effective method right now.
