Warmer days and nights…..

Daytime temps are what most people are interested in. I watch nighttime temps more closely. As long as we have freezing temps at night we will be doing a slow melt. This week we are starting the second part of Spring. You can see by the graph that a few days of clouds and cooler temperatures do to our flows. The next week will have both warm conditions during the day, but above freezing at night as well. Expect sharks teeth appearing on the gauge everyday as our snow pack goes away. Those without big-water game should come see me. We will have pushy flows for a while…… You could wait for lower/slower water, or learn how we fish right on through Spring flows. The river is green colored, with good visibility to 4-5 feet. Bugs kick-in mid-morning…..as I always say…..the fish can’t quit eating , or leave the water…..we have the advantage! See you out there!
