Water Conditions: Good the flows are moving downwards quickly and at 134 cfs as of 10/28.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:Good use small midges and Baetis. If you're fishing closer to the dam, make sure you have a crayfish or a leech pattern on as your top fly and hang on for the ride. Crayfish are starting to give way to leeches as the water starts to cool. Air temps up there were in the teens last night.
