Not a lot of angling pressure here and the fishing has been good.  Still going pretty solid here in the deepest sections of the river.  Flows down to 20 cfs but knowing where to fish can yield some real solid fish right now.  The fish tend to concentrate in the deepest water this time of year as frigid temperatures and low water have them seeking out slightly warmer water.  Lots of juvenile perch have been washing through the pipe and stacking up below the dam area.  A good mixed bag of fish sizes are biting on properly presented flies.  Target the deepest pools and runs and you can be rewarded with some real beauties.  #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal have been great patterns to hang. #18 flashback hare’s ears, #18wd 40’s, and SJ worms also working well.
