Water Conditions:

Water levels are dropping slowly. Present elevation is 6,764.3 ft. versus 6,781 at the spillway.
Temps are on the rise again, low 70's on top and upper 60's on the bottom yet again.
Second Crowley Cam at the Fish Camp with streaming video is online.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

Seeing a good amount of fish in the north arm along green banks and six bays. Anywhere from 14 to 23ft of water. Seeing a few fish here and there in Layton and off Sandy. McGee is pretty much the dead sea right now.

They're on the perch bite now, seeing plenty of guys in the tube hooking up. Definitely going to want to hang one under your indicator for the occasional grab.

Wind has mellowed out and is coming up much later now than it was this time last week.

Recommended Flies:

Nymphs: Red/Black Optimidge Early, Copper Tiger, Dubbed Head Flashback Gray/Black Optimidge later in the AM.

Streamers: Punk Perch, Perfection Perch, Hare's Ear, AP Emerger, Damsel Fly nymph patterns.
