Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

There are a few fish in just about every bend above the bridge. Nothing big, mostly recent plants that moved up from the bait section. The water has cooled some and is fairly clear. Seeing plenty of big caddis on the water early before the winds come up. The further up you go the better right now.
