Flows still holding at winter release levels. Great fishing as we approach the spring and egg patterns and SJ worms along with SD Crawlers getting some nice fish to bite. Fish are still hanging in the deepest water, and the larger trout have been sustaining themselves on the massive amounts of juvenile perch that have gathered at the head of the tailwater. We are running trips here now and will fish over this way more this month as it has remained consistent while other areas have been going through their late winter flow increases. Otter eggs in all colors, #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal have been great patterns to hang. SJ worms and Drifters’ Crawlers also working well.
