Flows now at 62 cfs. Lots of wild fish in various locations of the river. Water is crystal clear, so a sneaky and stealthy approach is needed. Drag free drifts have been getting bites on the surface with a dry fly that matches the hatch. Small nymphs have also been working well in the deeper pools.
 

River now at an excellent flow rate at 69 cfs. Fish are still rising to hoppers, stimulators, caddis, and mayfly dries. Keep the offerings floating high on the water for some aggressive takes. Fishing along the under cut banks, deep pools, and riffles have been getting grabs.

 

The section upstream from the Benton Bridge is open year around with special regulations. Seasonal closures, and angling restrictions apply downstream from the bridge, check regulations before fishing in this section.
