Flows continue to drop and as of Monday were at 5074.3 cfs. Watch for possible decreases yet this week. Word has it that flows should be around the 3000 cfs area by the end of July. Water clarity remains 6-8 feet. The water temperature has increased and is up to 61 degrees, which has led to some reports of a sporadic caddis hatch. We even had a few anglers last week who caught and released a few fish on hoppers, mainly using the Miller Time Hopper sizes 8-10. Not sure if they are striking at them out of curiosity or actually seeking them out. Dry fly fishing is still slow but once the flows decrease to below 5,000 cfs it should pick up immediately. If you are going to try for hatches late evening it has been best using Black Rip Cord Caddis or Black Henryville Caddis (16-18). Nymph fishing has still been your best bet. Hot patterns include Pete’s Carpet Bug tan, Firebead Soft Hackle Sowbug tan and Firebead Soft Hackle Ray Charles tan (all in 14-16), trailed behind either orange or red Gummi (Squirmy) San Juan Worms.
