The hatchery has opened and has enabled the anglers to spread out a bit from the Hatchery to the ranger station at the headwaters. Fish are still congregated towards the upper stretches of the Fall where the water is warmer. BWO’s, and midges are the main activity on top, with a possibility of throwing little black or brown stones. When dry flies aren’t turning heads it could be a time to throw a big, juicy, olive streamer pattern, like a Zonker or Muddy Buddy, this can get fish cruising across the river to investigate.
