TRIP SUMMARY

Flows are stable at 100 CFS and trout are able to spread out and be happy. Be mindful when you're approaching the river as you'll find trout out and about near the bank as you walk up. A lot of options are on the menu; we got eats on pale colored eggs, mysis shrimp, midge emergers early in the day (Top secret, manhattan midge (red) in the 18-20 range), and blue wing olives made an appearance in the afternoon. The wind was here and there and during the calm periods we got looks on some dry flies (parachute adams, Antonio's Adult BWO, Mole Fly). Don't overlook faster water, we were surprised by some aggressive eats near the middle of some fast runs. Those trout will move up mid column eating emergers so adjust your weight and depth first before changing flies. Great time to be out on the Blue!
