Water Conditions: Fair as of 8/22 flows are down to 24cfs above Grant Lake and at 50 cfs Below. Water temps in the upper 60's above Grant lake and even warmer down below 395.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good we're getting reports of good fishing to be had down below 395, but it's very technical fishing. Lots of bushwacking, wading up to your chest and very wary fish. If you can get to the productive holes without scaring every fish away and make an excellent presentation without snagging your fly on overhanging brush, you will be rewarded. Fish small hoppers and caddis in the late afternoon as the sun goes behind the mountains.

Recommended Flies:

DRIES:
Elk Hair Caddis #18, Royal Wulff #14-16, Kaufman Stimulator 16, Parachute Adams #16, Yellow Humpy #16, Royal Coachman #16, Rubber Leg Stimulator, Fat Albert #14, Chernobyl Ant #14

NYMPHS: Copper John #18, BH Prince Nymph #18, Stocker's BH Lightning Bug #18.
