The river is still in good shape. There is a lot of snow in the area but the water
is staying in good shape thanks to low discharges and stream levels. We
recommend fishing the upper section near the dam. It is warmer.

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are great flies to use for the next
several weeks.
Midges are always important in a tailwater. It is almost alway best to fish 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.
Various species of Blue-winged olives are hatching.

Winter stoneflies are hatching.
