Returned to the DH section this morning. Water flow has dropped to 250 cfs, down from 600 cfs a few days ago. While wading was ok, the water was still colored, with visibility reduced to 12-18 inches.

there were no significant hatches, so the action was subsurface. there was a strong preference for “big and meaty”.

due to our wet spring, there is a bumper crop of gnats, black flies and mosquitos. bug repellent kept them from biting, but a I had a cloud of bugs buzzing around my head at all times. if you go, DON’T FORGET YOUR BUG REPELLENT!
