The flush is over in the canyon and flows have leveled out at around 900 cfs. This is a great time to enjoys some great pre-hatch fishing. We will start to see the salmonflies near the confluence moving upstream over the next few weeks. Nymph rigs in the riffles and deep runs and dry droppers closer to the banks are fishing well right now.
