After several days of spillover and rising temps, (and great discourse with fisheries and the City-many thanks to Gene and Charlie) a recent gate change will cool things down for a while. Expect to see flows in the 100 to 150 Cfs range, a great level for fishing. Cooler water temps in the low to mid 50’s will be welcome after quite a few days in the high 60’s. Be sure to bring plenty of weighted nymphs along and plan on swinging soft hackles through the riffles.
Small, (18-22) elk hair caddis and caddis emergers are great searching patterns on bright days. Sulpher spinner falls have been spotty and late-try after 8:00 PM with a rusty spinner sized #14-16. Cdc and snowshoe flies are still all the rage.Can’t wait till eight? Try a #12-14 Hopper with a #16-18 ant dropper to move fish along the grassy banks. Get out and fish!
