Flows got bumped to 180 cfs recently; they have been bouncing around give or take 50 all season. Still good for numbers with most of the fish being browns. Nymphing under an indicator is best with a tandem fly rig. Sierra Drifters Doug R and Two Bug Doug D entered the Bridgeport Fisheries Enhancement Tourney again this year and Doug R got big fish honors on the river with a 23 inch brown. The picture is posted at www.sierradrifters.com/fish.htm. He used a pattern created by Two Bug, damn thing looks like a Boa Constrictor! Two Bug swears by it as the upper fly. Kind of like a San Juan Worm on steroids. Broken back midges work great here as well as flashback and standard issue PT's #14-20. Proper weighting is the key to the EW, as well as a drag free drift. Let's hope the water lords keep those flows above 100 into November. It will be special for sure!
