The weather is hot.  We have had record highs the last couple of days with the temperature reaching 111 degrees today.  That's the bad news; the good news is they are generating daily and this keeps the river cold.  They are running 2 generators from 8;00 am to midnight. This allows good drift fishing in the mornings and early afternoon.  Wade fishing is limited to the upper river early and Winkley Shoal from about 8:00 am to 11:30 am.

The fog on the river makes it comfortable till about noon and then it gets warm.  The rainbows are biting good and an occasional nice brown makes for a good day.

Good Fishing!!
