Water levels continue to drop with irrigation and surface water temperatures are in the high 70’s which are normal conditions for this time of year.  Much of the old dam is showing.  Fishing is fair to good.  Anglers should have the best luck with Power Bait, Mepps, Panther Martins, and nightcrawlers.  Fly rodders should be using black or olive wooly buggers as well as chironomids, hare’s ears, leech patterns and PT nymphs. Trout may also hit dry flies early in the morning or late in the evening.
