Road opened as of today, but I had a chance to fish it Wednesday afternoon and it was great. Flows were perfect, water temps are perfect. Get it before the flows drop and the water gets too warm! Fish are pretty much everywhere, so don't be afraid to throw a cast into anything fishy looking. As always they want the fly riding up high, so don't forget your dry shake.
