Current flows are steady at 2000 CFS with a water temp of 50.7 degrees. Nymph fishing has been good with of course scud and sowbug imitations. Hot patterns have been the Dark Orange Bighorn Scud sizes 14-16 trailed by a UV Eddie Vedder Sowbug sizes 16-18 both Gray and Tan. With flows down not much weight is needed. Usually just one B split shot is sufficient. As for dries it’s been mostly Cluster midges, sizes 16-18 as well as Blue Winged Olives in the same sizes. Wind is the biggest factor on successful dry fly days. No wind, good day. Lots of wind, bad day.
