The river is in good shape with minimum generation.  With the forecast for cool, dry weather for the next few days, it should remain the same.  I fished Friday, Saturday and Sunday with good success.  The afternoons have been better than mornings the last three days.  There is a blue-winged olive hatch in the afternoons but the fish don't seem to be keying on them unless they're hitting the emergers below the surface. I have been taking most of the fish on size 20 midge pupas.

I haven't spotted any caddis yet but the hatch should be soon.  The midges are still hatching, mostly in the mornings. 

I had a report that the disolved oxygen level was getting low at the dam, but the reading on the lower river is still good.  The brown trout are beginning to get a little more active with some good fish being spotted lately.

Good Fishing!!
