Snow and wicked cold will greet you.Flows here are reading 29 cfs as of today. Small streamers tossed quartering downstream and swinging/retrieving cross-current can get some of the larger fish to look at your fly in the deeper sections. Go with heavier sinking lines for the deeper pools. Nymph rigs with enough weight to bounce the bottom are also getting some of the bottom grubbers to bite. Try different patterns before moving on here. Eggs, SJ worms, Assassins, Serendipities, Copper John’s, and Midges are good searching patterns this time of year. Go with larger sized flies on top and smaller ones on the bottom if you choose to fish a two nymph rig. For example: #14-16 as your top bug and #18-20 as your lower.

This fishery is open year around below the Bridgeport Reservoir dam to Nevada State line. Open year around in Nevada also.
