Flows now at 16 cfs. Water conditions are very good for this time of year. No snow or ice present at this time.  Smaller nymphs like Assassins and FB PT’s still working with small indicators or dry flies (high vis BWO’s) used as attractors/indicators. Solid BWO hatches will come off throughout the winter. CDFW planted thousands of juvenille trout recently. Hopefully these fish will survive the winter, and we will see a large increase in fish counts for next summer. There are some really beautiful fish holding in the deeper pools and runs; but don’t expect a huge numbers day on the holdover fish.

 

This is a year around fishery with special regs in place.
