The river is clear with two-unit generation on a 12-hour basis. The schedule has been 9:00 am to 9:00 pm for the last two days. The times may change but the Corp plans on keeping the 12-hour generation period for the next week. This of course depends on the amount of rainfall we receive.
The bite has been good by staying ahead of the generation. Caddis flies have been hatching each day and the fish are taking emergers, caddis pupa and midge pupa. The brown trout have been more active during this hatch with rainbows biting as well.
Since we are back to 2-unit generation, please use extra care if boating on the high water. Just remember even if the water is low where you begin your trip, the high water is coming and plan your time on the river accordingly.
