Water Conditions: Fair to Good. Flows vary on a daily basis - 15cfs as of 8/9. 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 fishing mostly big hopper and attractor flies on the far banks and in the fast water early in the morning until about 10. Trico spinners early in the morning. Not as strong as it was though. Not really worth fishing mid-day right now. Caddis and some BWO patterns in the late afternoons until dark.
