FLOWS ARE GOING UP TO 4510 CFS AVERAGE ON JUNE 21st - THE DAILY FLOW SCHEDULE IS BELOW

 

Cicadas small and big, and Mormon Crickets are thick on the river.  The fishing has been really good!  The higher flows will cool down the water temp, but the fish are keyed into big terrestrials and will still search for them in the higher flows.  Yellow Sally Stoneflies, Caddis and PMD's will likely start soon after the high water comes down.  

The flows are currently at 850 cfs in the day and rise to about 2,000 cfs in the evening for a few hours for power generation.  The flows are going up on June 21st to hurt the Smallmouth Bass spawn downstream.  The Smallmouth eat a lot of the Endangered Species fry.  This will be a yearly occurrence of higher higher flows mid - to late June as they coincide this release with the emergence of Smallmouth Bass fry.  So in the future we will see 2 high water events yearly - one to benefit the Endangered Species, and the other to hurt the Bass.  

1200 CFS average
