SWPA, SouthWest Power Administration has been running an hour or two in the afternoon usually on the weekends they have not been running. Always check the SWPA for the generation schedule. With the low flows we are having, the best fishing has been early mornings while there's still flow from the water released from the night before. Try fishing where there's still current or hit the deep holes below shoals.

The deep water has been fishing good alongside the moss beds. Anything buggy like Pheasant tail soft hackles or Guides Choice Hare's ears have been good. Midge's have been working exceptionally well when used as a dropper off a pheasant tail or any soft hackle. Egg patterns and San Juan worms are also on the menu and have been produced.
