The flow has come down with all the cold weather we just received. It’s back to 2400 cfs at Melrose. Along with the drop in flow, the water temps took a big drop but have rebounded nicely and almost hit 50 degrees yesterday. FIshing has been good out this direction. The lower river below Divide has warmer water than the upper valley. The warmth of this weekend should result in some fantastic fishing. One thing the cold water earlier this week may have triggered is another hatch of Skwalas as it warms again for a second time. Look for fish along the banks from the first big flow of water, they will still be there waiting.
