Flows now at 22 cfs due to the recent storm.  A bit of runoff from melting snow and start of storm rains has the water up a bit.  This small increase will relocate fish around the creek and open up a few more holding areas.  Midges, mayflies, and a few caddis have been showing up daily.  The newly planted fish have been taking advantage of the micro midge hatch all day.  Larger size trout have been keying in more on nymphs, strymphs, and worm and egg patterns.  It can get crowded here while the weather is mild so finding a good spot on the creek can pay off.  #18 mayflies, #18-22 midges, #20 Brassies, and egg and SD worm patterns have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout.
