Water Conditions: Good as of 10/3 the flows are steady at 64 cfs. Tons of Mud Snails so clean your gear before you wade somewhere else!

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good but the section below the bridge is closed as of October 1st. Stick to the usual fare, worms, eggs and pheasant tails under the indicator in the slow deep water with plenty of weight.
