ODFW is done with their experiment (water wasting if you ask me) and the river is down to 351 cfs today. That is still on the high side but appears to be the normal flow for 2020. Not sure why, because BOR used to run the river at 240 cfs for most of the summers I can remember. 

The Mother’s Day Caddis hatch is on the move. Lot’s of adults on the surface and pupa in the drift. 
BWO’s and Midges are hatching too.

We are seeing great Nymphing especially ESN techniques.
