Water Conditions: Good flows steady for two weeks at 25 cfs as of 11/27.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good fishing has really picked up and good reports are coming back from guides and clients. Some big Browns in the mix. These sunny days as soon as the water temp comes up a couple of degrees the baetis start hatching in quantity and it gets good quickly. Midges early as usual.
