Flows are holding at 700cfs in town, 1010cfs in the canyon.. That is bigger than most folks can wade in. So, we don’t……We use a big stick and stand back. Fishing is a challenge for shorter rods now. Mid-morning seems best….in the afternoon, you will see the flows go up from snow melt., and if you have been checking water temps, it drops from 48deg. down to 43deg by the end of the day, and seems to put the risers down. We are seeing March Brown mayflies a bit more, BWO’s too. Bugs slow way down around 2:00 I’m still dreaming about Skwalla’s at night, but not seen in daylight lately. I will have to wait till next year to see them again. We are on to the next Big Bug of love!!!! Seen a few Midge Hoppers…they are coming. I’ve also seen the warden several times lately, so make sure your fishing Lic. is current, and I recommend avoiding a fine of $528 by pinching those barbs. I check every fly on my pack to be sure I’m good to go.
