Little or no change here as the collection ditch has plenty of open water for fishing, but travel is through Secret Pass.  Water level in the collection ditch is up, especially as you get closer to Brown Dike, which is good news for anglers.   The water clarity is variable, being murky in some parts and clear in others.  Anglers report catching fish averaging 12 to 16 inches at the collection ditch using egg patterns, balanced leeches, crystal buggers, #14 hare’s ears, and #16-18 PT nymphs.  Other flies working include the usual small nymphs, olive soft hackles, red or blue copper Johns, and prince nymphs. Small brightly colored spinners were doing well for spin fishermen.
