Water Conditions: Fair to Good the flows vary on a daily basis - up to 123 cfs as of 7/19. Water temps in the high 60's, so fish early as not to stress out the fish in the warmer water.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good to excellent. Fish mostly big hopper and attractor flies on the far banks and in the fast water. Small mayflies mixed in throughout the day as well. Fishing Caddis and some BWO patterns in the late afternoons and early evening.
