|Colder than it Looked|
|Water Temp: 33ºF Flow: 750 cfs|
|Due to cold temperatures, we fished up river focusing on the transitional water and riffles. As usual for this flow, we fished with conventional floating 7-8 wt lines.
Good success on bright patterns ie. eggs flies, glow bugs, spawn flies, estaz. The naturals & buggers didn't bring any strikes.
The water temps are still low, but we feel within a week or so those temperatures will be coming up & the steelhead will become more aggressive. Pray for moderate ambient temps for a gradual thaw and fishable water levels.
The upper fly zone is now open and reporting good catches of steelhead. Pick your water depending on flow.. you'll find the fish.
