Not much has changed since last week. Buggers in olive or black, Caddis are hatching, PMD's and BWO's of course the hoppers are all over the place and also the ants. I'd certainly skate a stimulator in yellow or orange. Para-madam X in yellow or chartreuse. Nymphing: micro mayfly, EC caddis, PT, hare's ear, little yellow stone, caddis pupa, san Juan's. Catch & Release section (downstream at Hangman's Bridge) , Like the water above, it's nice flows. The reports that we've gotten is that it's slow.. it's not that the fish aren't biting, it's just that there aren't a hell of a lot of fish there! Start watching for the snakes trying to cool off in the water Same bug patterns as above.
Flows: average 113 cfs this week, just a little below median flow. above Hangman's (along hwy 89/4)
