Improving Conditions

In just the last 24 hours the river has dropped considerably and visibility improved to about two feet. It is now at 75oo cfs and dropping. It all depends how much rain we get this weekend as it could still bump up big time.

It looks like now Simmons has the closest prediction of May 30 at 9122 cfs. As I said though, this could change fairly quickly.

There are still plenty of caddis flies and some mayflies showing up. If you find some back water the dry fly fishing is pretty good. Art found some of this on the upper river and caught several grayling on top.

The pools in the Dewey Canyon are good. Low side drift boats should  still avoid this stretch.

    This is not an official entry. I would say you have seen your peak. It may bump a little here or there. So I would guess you already have your winner.

    Now please get out the crystal ball and let us know when the salmonflies will pop :-)
