Water Conditions: Fair to Good, the flows vary on a daily basis - 154cfs as of 8/2. 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, fish mostly big hopper and attractor flies on the far banks and in the fast water early in the morning til about 10. Not really worth fishing mid-day right now. Caddis and some BWO patterns in the late afternoons until dark.
