With the temperatures in the 80's its starting to feel more like Fall. Expect to see reduced flows. The SWPA, SouthWest Power Administration has been running low flows. This week we have seen them running one unit or two units of generation for an hour or two usually starting late afternoon around 5 pm. The weekend generation schedule is about the same.

The best bite has been early morning and evenings. The fish seem to be biting a little better in the shoals or wherever there's a bit of current. With the reduced current anywhere you can get a drift is a good place to fish. Small pheasant tail nymphs, Midges and egg patterns have been working good.

Here of lately I've been running an egg pattern and a midge dropper. Stripping small streamer patterns, wholly buggers  have been working as well. Along with crackle back emergers on a sink tip.
