The river remains clear and low for the most part with sporadic generation during the day. The posted schedule has not been accurate for the last couple of days. I am not sure why, maybe a spike in demand for electricity. It is wise to check during the day for an unexpected generation.
The rainbows are taking small midge pupa and small caddis pupa. The browns are beginning to move and taking egg patterns and midge pupa.
It is that time of the year when you should be careful when wading the shoals where the fish are trying to spawn. A redd is an area on the bottom of the river in the gravel where the fish have cleaned the debris from the rocks and lay their eggs in the gravel. These areas are easily identified be being cleaner and shining on the bottom. Please avoid wading thru these areas. Disturbing the eggs destroys them and therefor reduces the amount of browns in the river. Wade around, not thru the redds. The browns are not stocked in the Little Red River and depend on this spawn to survive.
