Current flows are right at 3600 cfs with a water temp of 52 degrees. Conditions are very good now for wade fishing and dry fly action should really start to roll now. Watch for increased black and sedge (tan) caddis hatches. Hopper action has been very good especially on windy days. Favorite patterns have been the White Cloud hopper in peach or tan size 10-12. Also More or Less hoppers in Peach, Pink or Tan same sizes. As for nymphs the Soft Hackle Ray Charles in tan or pink size 16-18 trailed by a Black Pheasant Tail or Black Quill in size 16-18 as well. The trout are fighting extremely well right now with the reduced water temp. Good luck!
