Water conditions: Great
Flow: 45 CFS. This is a permanent flow required to be maintained by LADWP
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good
Hot weather makes the gorge an oven so take water a plenty and go early.
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.
