Water Conditions: Fair, flows are down considerably to 42 cfs as of 10/10.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good the flows are now down in the 40's. Water is quite dirty with algae from the lake. With the res as low as it is the flows are now down to the double digits and will probably remain that way as the ranchers in Nevada no longer need as much water.
Nymphing small mayfly patterns until about noon. Try some terrestrials from mid-day until the evening when there are some sporadic Caddis hatching.
