Flows now at 9 cfs, but we can expect to see a jump in flows here if the weather decides to warm up after the storms roll through.  There’s been a great window for throwing dry flies (BWO’s) during the afternoons as the trout are really keying in on them.  Otter eggs have been accounting for some bigger fish in the deeper runs.  There is no drive in access now since the new snow has cut it off, so walking in will get you access to both the canyon and interpretive area.  #18 BWO’s, #18-22 Parachute midges, and Otter eggs and SD Crawlers have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout.
