Fishing Conditions

July 14, 2019

The boulder is on the verge on being ready to go. It still high and pumping a ton of water. It came down to arounbd 2,250 cfs. Still pretty high and muddy down low. Up high is running clearer, but the water temps are still low and the fishing is very slow because of this.  There are probably more productive waters to fish until this is in prime shape. If you do head this way, focus on the softer slower seems.
