It looks like the cold weather has given up it’s hold on the south.  Milder weather is forecast for the next two weeks. 
The river is clear with one-unit generation around the clock.  The Corp has requested a 3000 dsf daily release.  Since one generator is down for maintenance until May 20th, it requires the other generator to be run 24/7 to accommodate this amount of release. This will be done until the lake is at normal pool.  Without any heavy rain, this should be about a week.  No wade fishing is available with this generation.  Drift fishing is still an option and should be good on this generation.
With the warmer weather, insect activity should increase with caddis and March Brown hatches occurring daily.  Nymphs and pupa flies will be the best choice due to the depth of the water.

Good Fishing!!
