The bottom is dropping out right now as I write this Tuesday evening. Look at the chart. You will approve.
Already speculation that there will not be enough water to fill the reservoir. It is just that until we see what the level is like in the last week of June.
What we do know is the dry fly fishing will turn around. Tuesday afternoon saw some glimpses of the future. And I gotta tell you, I liked it.
Wednesday, today, will bring us more info, real-time knowledge and a fishing report.
Tuesday turned up smelling a lot better than Monday. Way better. The fish were on the bite and the river was nearly empty. Really quite nice.
Check out the levels and smile. We’ll see you on your favorite dry fly flat soon.
Knock on wood.
