The river is running at about 31 cfs right now.  We’ve had a little bit of a break in the weather the last couple days, still not too many reports back from the river but there has been some anglers getting down there.  The reports we have received have been pretty decent though with a handful of anglers reporting 3 to 10 fish per day, mostly fishing nymphs still, just a couple fish caught on streamers that we’ve heard of.  It looks like there’s more snow coming this week so that might slow it up a bit but if the temperatures stay above zero for a while the fishing should get pretty good.  Haven’t heard much from Nevada lately but typically it’s a little bit warmer down there so the fishing should be good there as well.

Recommended Flies:
Darth baetis, pheasant tail, prince, aggravator prince, psycho prince,  san juan worm, wd-40, flashback emerger, zebra midge, silver streak, rainbow warrior, dead drift crayfish, sculpzilla, dali lama, para adams, blue wing olive.
