Water is still up a foot over normal with a good flow, water is still
a bit murky and will remain so for a few more days, unless we get more
rain, fishing was pretty good this weekend, bigger jigs, heavier flies, and
glo balls and San Juan worms did very well, I fished this morning with a #8
olive bead headed woolybugger and did very well, landed 8, and caught 3 more
on a white Mega Worm, I used 5X fluorocarbon tippet, 9' leader was my total

Several people were catching very well around me using Rooster Tails one guy
was doing very well on a gold spoon, the upper end looks a bit better than the
lower end, and the plastic worm fishermen were doing well, saw a lot of fish
being caught on a yellow worm this morning.

Saw a couple of guys in the upper hole, up by the hatchery fishing small micro
type jigs, they were catching fish nearly every cast, at least for the 15 minutes
I watched them fish, most people were using 1/32nd ounce and heavier jigs this

Orange power eggs, and yellow power eggs have been good all week, white is
very good also, some are still catching trout on the big gulp worms, in brown.
with the water being murky, 4 or 3 lb line is fine, we will go back to mostly 2 lb
line when the water clears, good luck on the river this week.
