The river is in good shape for mid August. The discharges and stream levels are providing
some good wading opportunities. We recommend fish the upper two-thirds of the river.
The lower section is still cool enough but you should do better upstream. There are plenty
of Little Sister caddisflies hatching.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain today and from Sunday through next
Thursday. Highs will range from 91 to 93 and lows from 70 to 74 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Always check the schedule of releases. Blue-winged olive nymphs have been the
number one producer. The stream is full of various species of small BWOs nymphs and
the trout are always focusing on them. Midges are always hatching and eaten by trout
The Olive and Black Sculpin Streamers are great flies to use for the larger trout. The
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use anytime.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat all year.
As a backup strategy, we recommend fishing a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly.
Fish the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Cinnamon Caddis are hatching. Little Sister caddisflies are hatching.
