Rising with snowmelt

Flows are rising with warm days, but watch for cool days to drop the flows and have a stellar fishing window.

In high, dirty, and cooler water, you are going to want to go bigger and maybe flashier flies.  Think big stoneflies, SJ Worms, or larger caddis pupa.

Baetis have been hatching with clouds and fish are looking up

Of course, this is streamer season.  Big, dark, and flashy.

Most fish will be pushed out of the faster currents closer to the banks
