Flows in Mogul are about 266 and holding prett steady, Previously this week, we put out a chart of the temperatures out of Sparks (yes, a different location, but a good place to start) Watch those temps on the river, start looking around 11 am, and check every 30 minutes. (take a break, drink some water) Fishing pretty well on the California side. And up higher on the NV side, lots of the LCT's stocked by USFWS are STILLbeing caught. Stones, Green Drake nymphs (Olive hare's ear, in a pinch) San Juans , Rainbow warriors. If you're adventurous, throw a big ugly Rabbit strip fly to clean up a run or hole. It was hit pretty hard with 2 years of hard drought and really warm water temps. There are some survivors and that's good. If we want the repopulation of brown trout to be there, let them go (tell your spin or bait buddies) FWS dumped in a big load of Little LCT's.. good fodder for the browns and big 'bows.
