With no generation since October 15th, the river is extremely low.  The fishing has slowed due to the shallow water and slow current.  The blue wing olive hatch continues during mid-day, usually occurring about 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Small flies such as midge pupas, small sow bugs and blue wing emergers seem to be the best bet.
Due to the low water, navigating a boat on the river is a challenge.  If boating, be aware that the rocks and moss are a hazard. When wading, look for a slightly deeper run in the shoals to be holding fish.
The predicted generation for Monday shows some generation late in the evening.  If this holds true it should help the overall fishing.

Good Fishing!!
