Flows now at 11 cfs.  The recent cold snap will have the fish feeding a tad later into the day when things start to warm up.  Midges, mayflies, and a few caddis have been showing up daily.  The newly planted fish have been taking advantage of the micro midge hatch all day.  Larger size trout have been keying in more on nymphs, strymphs, and worm and egg patterns.  It can get crowded here while the weather is mild so finding a good spot on the creek can pay off.  #18 mayflies, #18-22 midges, #20 Brassies, and egg and SD worm patterns have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout.
