The East Fork of the Owyhee immediately below Wildhorse Dam is flowing at a trickle as little water is coming out of the dam. As you go further downstream flows pick up considerably with the snowmelt and flows coming in from the tributaries. The pool at the dam is still holding fish and is providing action for anglers using nymphs and streamers. As of March 24, the East Fork of the Owyhee near Mountain City gauging station was flowing at 127 cfs.
