The river is clear with morning generation of 2 units beginning about 6:00 am.  The period of generation has been changing daily so one should check the next day generation before planning their fishing trip. This information is usually posted after 4:00 pm for the next day and on Friday it is posted for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  The lake is in the normal pool so generation is for power demand only.
The bite is fair to good depending on staying ahead of the new generation or after the generation has ceased, going in behind it at the dam. Caddis pupa, emergers and midge pupa are good fly selections at this time.  The caddis hatch is beginning to happen on the warmer days.  The fish are keying on the pupa and emergers at this time.

Good Fishing!!
