The river remains low during the day with about 4 hours of late afternoon generation.  The rain this week did not muddy the river and the fishing remains good with March browns and blue-winged olives being the main insect hatches.  The caddis hatch has slowed. but the trout continue to hit bead head caddis emergers.  Large nymphs also continue to be a good choice in sizes 12 and 14’s.  Small midge pupas or small pheasant tail nymphs are a good choice in areas where the blue-winged olives are hatching.
My fishermen are catching excellent numbers of nice rainbows with occasional browns and the fishing looks good for June.  The lake is normal and without any large rains the generation should allow windows each day for wading or drift fishing with good water levels.  If an early summer trip is on your mind, now is a good time to book that trip.  I have open dates in June so give me a call (501-690-9166) or email and we will work out the details.  Look forward to seeing you on the river.

Good Fishing!!
