The river is still running around 22 cfs right now, the fishing has been ok, not wide open but there are some fish being caught.  The traffic is pretty light so we’re not getting too many reports but of the ones we are getting it sounds like most anglers are getting into 3 or 4 fish per day.  It’s been cold in the mornings lately but the daytime temps are warming up a bit so the best time to be down there has been from about 10am to around 3 pm or so.  Anglers have been reporting some activity on the surface here and there but with limited success getting the fish to take a fly, most of the fish being caught are still being caught with nymphs and a few with streamers.
Recommended Flies:
Darth baetis, san juan worm, wd-40, flashback emerger, zebra midge, silver streak, rainbow warrior, dead drift crayfish, sculpzilla, para adams, blue wing olive.
