With flows steadily dropping in the upper river the lower river (Glenshire Dr. to Stateline) is now fishing best. Great hatches coming off throughout the day with the most predictable of these being caddis in the late evening. Expect PMD’s mid-morning, Yellow Sallies mid-day, the occasional Golden Stone and a variety of terrestrials including Grasshoppers and Ants. Nymphing the deep runs has still been the best bet to tie into something large and a Golden Stonefly nymph down to a caddis pupa or mayfly nymph has been best.
