  • Streamflow: 576 ft³/s
  • Gage height: 2.74 ft

Flowing clear and low, fish will be spooky, so approach and wade accordingly.  It’s cold, so expect winter fishing conditions of hunkered-down trout.

Watch for hatches of midges, but a good attractor nymph with midge dropped below is a good nymph rig go-to.

Attractor Nymphs:  Pats Rubberlegs 8-12, Duracell Jig 12-16, 12-14 20 Incher Stone, San Juan Worms, 10-14 Prince Nymph.

Midges:  Zebra Midge or Poison Tung 18-22, Rainbow Warrior 18-20, Disco Midge 18-20, Black Midge Pupa 18-22.

Dries: Sproat Midge 20-24, Griffith Gnat 18-24
