Here we go again. The release this morning is now up to   596 cfs, and I am still unaware as to why these sudden changes are taking place. Naturally, this will affect the morning fishing (likely adversely), but as everything settles by the afternoon, good things should happen with the colder water temps. Yesterday was a decent one – bugs pretty much throughout the day, with fish up and eating. The only issue was how spooky the critters were (not like that is a new scenario) – boat and wader shy, you had to be on your game, but there were fish to be had at least – can’t complain there! Today is set to be a cooler day all around with the sun peeking through the clouds sporadically, which means we can hope for an early evening spinner fall if the temps do stay below 70 as they are predicted. Fingers crossed, I’ve got some jumbo Iso parachute spinners I can’t wait to throw!

Yep. Those are Tricos. We had numbers like this last week, but they are finally starting to wane. Photo: DRC
