The upper river fished good on Tuesday after about 6 hours of unexpected one unit generation from 11:00 pm until 5:00 am.  My fishermen caught rainbows and 4 small browns.  The largest brown (about 14”) was carrying eggs, so they should start moving up to the shoals within the next couple of weeks. All fish were taken on size 16 mayfly nymphs and size 20 midge pupa.

The river is clear but the forecast is for heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday.  If this takes place, you should check on the river conditions on Thursday.  Some generation is scheduled for Wednesday evening and this might clear the upper sections of the river.

Good Fishing!!
