The river is still pretty mossy, but fishing well. Nymphs, streamers and dries are catching fish, with the best times to get out being mornings and late afternoon. We are starting to see some blue wing olives, and the trico fishing has been good.
Fishing has been productive when fishing tricos in the morning and as the morning progresses PMD’s will start to take fish. Later in the day caddis have been working well.
