The lake has returned to normal level and generation has been reduced so there are now windows available for wading. Most wading opportunities are at JFK Park during the afternoon hours.  Some wading downstream at Winkley for a short time in the morning.  These hours are changing daily so it’s best to check the next day generation before planning your trip.  

The river is clear and drift fishing is fair to good by staying ahead of the generation or going in behind the generation and fishing falling water.

Some caddis are beginning to stir so a size 16 emerger or caddis pupa may be a good choice of flies in the coming days.  Midge pupas have also been productive in the low water areas.

Good Fishing!!
