Water levels are at 280 cfs at the spring and water clarity is clear. It rained about a half of an inch on Sunday. Not enough to affect the river. The river has been so clear lately that a person can see the trout coming before the take. That can make for a very exciting take. Oliive and black woolly buggers, Guppies, Brownies and Y2k’s have been the hot flies. There has been very little bug life hatching on the river. Just too hot. The trout are biting great unless a front is moving through and then they can turn off. Spin fisher’s have been using trout colored spoon’s, nightcrawlers and troutmagnets. When using the troutmagnets it is important to fish the troutmagnet just off the bottom of the river with a float. If the sun is bearing down then it is a must to get down. With the low water levels it is not hard to accomplish.
