The tailwater below Stagecoach is probably the best bet but the discharges are
high, too high to wade, and the water is stained. Fish Sculpin streamers like the
Black or Olive Matuka Sculpin. Skwala stoneflies and Little Brown stoneflies are
hatching in some  sections.
Stream Conditions:






7 Day Weather Forecast:
There is a chance of snow through Sunday,
otherwise clear for the next week. Highs will range from
59 to 64 degrees and
lows from
30 to 33 degrees.


Recommended Trout Flies:
Brown and White Belly Sculpin Streamers, size 6
Blue-winged Olives, size 18 and 20, nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges:Cream size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults

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.

Little Brown Stoneflies are hatching.
Skwala stoneflies are hatching.
