Flies to use: Depending on the hatch. Best performers are.

When to Fish: You can fish and produce on this river all year long. Hot times are early spring, April and May, and late summer, September and October. Avoid run-off in late May through June. This year run-off is not a factor.

Hatch Report: Caddis flies are hatching in numbers currently. Some evening Baetis, large numbers of large stoneflys.

River Rating: Eight Trout. Short of a heavily stocked and managed tail water this is as good as it gets. Given the opportunity, this is the only thing I prefer to fish
