The lake is back to normal levels so the Corp is not scheduling releases from Greers Ferry.  This means the generation is scheduled by Southwest Power for power demand only.  With this change, we should see less generation and with the cold weather it should be morning releases during peak demand.  They have informed me that there is still a possibility for evening releases if the need arises.  One should check the SWPA Forecast each evening before planning their fishing trip.

There is some brown activity, but I would call it limited.  Some redds are beginning to show up on the shoals so please be careful while wading.  These redds are the areas where the browns are depositing their eggs.  They will show as clean areas on the gravel bottom that almost shine.  Wading thru these will destroy the eggs.  My fishermen have caught a few female browns that have spawned, but for the most part, they are catching males. 

Rainbows are biting egg patterns and midge pupa and the browns are mostly taking egg patterns.

Good Fishing!!
