Flows are 200 CFS. This is great news. The flows were hovering around 100-120 for most of July. The water was getting really warm, especially in the afternoons. At 200 CFS it should help to cool it down a bit. The California side is a little cooler because it is closer to the source. As the water flows downstream into Nevada it has time to really warm up. It is important to fish in the mornings and keep an eye on the water temps. 200 CFS will not cure the warm water issue completely. There are a ton of Rock Worms in the river. Lime green Caddis Pupa have been working really well. The fish are definitely keying in on smaller bugs in the size 16-22 range. As the flows go up make sure to add some weight to keep your flies down. Fish the seams and edges out of the main current. Fish have been holding just about anywhere there is a little flow and depth.
