Water Conditions: Good
Water temps up top are getting warm and fish are going deep late morning. Weeds are coming up.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good
Excellent early morning, late afternoon and eve. Challenging mid day. Early and late you can have great dry fly opportunities with fish feeding on midges and calibeatis. When you see a occasional rise in your area fish a P. Adams with a small bead head attractor below it about 18-24 inches. In the evenings with the wind is not bad you will see a great midge hatch and they love the Griffiths gnat. Other wise throw on the sinking line with a streamer and you can catch'em at any time of day, just very your retrieve, depth and color.

Recommended Flies:
NYMPHS-
Mid day sink tip or full sink line tugging bugger or minnow imitations as lead bug then 18-24 in.dropper with callibaetis nymph or small midge deep or along weed edge.
DRY FLIES- Calibaetis a must!
Griffiths gnats,midgelings,small baetis in#18-#22.Callibaetis emergers,callibaetis drys (foam wing drys working well) #14-#16.
STREAMERS-
Evenings, big wooleys, minnow imitations and zonkers.

Guides Hint: Try midging in 10-12 ft of water under an indicator.
