The fishing is still great and only getting better. The water has been running in the morning, but they haven’t been running it very much usually 1 generator or 2 generators at a real low level. Several more bigger fish are being seen as well as caught. We put a client on a 25″x15″ rainbow yesterday…it was a nice healthy fish with beautiful color. We figured it was roughly 7.5lbs, but the fight it gave us we thought it might have been bigger. The past 2 mornings have been nice an cool (for a change); So, the weather has been cooperating, generation has been somewhat cooperating (enough to get some great fishing in), and the spawning season is quickly coming…rainbows are really starting the spawning run now, but with regards to the coveted brown trout the will be starting in the next 2-3 weeks likely. Also to boost a little moral the fishing pressure hasn’t been bad either…not a whole lot of people down fishing other than on the weekends. The fly selection hasn’t changed a whole lot from last week, but when the water is low definately throw a sculpin/soft hackle and when the water is higher concentreate mostly on your nymph fishing down on the bottom. Don’t be one of the people missing out….Get Out an go catch some fish worth while! Good Luck and don’t forget to stop in to get daily advice or to fill up on the local fly patterns!
