The August heat seems to have passed and the river is in good shape.  Generation is back to power demand only and this has been about 5 hours of generation in the afternoon hours.  Last weekend it was cut to one hour per day in the afternoon Saturday and Sunday.   The five hour generation is good water for wade fishing and drift fishing and the trout are active.
Sow bugs, midge pupa, small mayfly nymphs and soft hackles are all productive.  There is also a window for dry flies during the mid afternoon when a variety of mini hatches are occurring.   Sporadic hatches include blue winged olives and small caddis.  You just have to be in the right place at the right time….ever heard that before?

Good Fishing!!
