Flows have been increased to 1510 cfs and the water temp is down to 60 degrees. Don’t expect highs over 80 degrees this week. Weeds are still an issue and the recreational floaters will still be around on the warmer afternoons but we won’t be hurting the trout anyway. Hoppers, beetles and ants will still be important on the warmer days and B.W.O.’s will fill in on the bad weather days and early on in the day especially when it is overcast. If the fish aren’t willing to rise, light nymph rigs including crawdads, sculpins and baetis nymphs should work fine. We are probably still a few weeks away from the whitefish and brown trout spawn but a handfull of fish will start feeling spunky pretty soon. Overall the lower has been picking up.
