Fishing & River Report

Flies & Lies Weekly Report 05-19-22 

CFS : at Cheesman canyon dam - 185
CFS : at Trumbull below brush creek - 192
Water clarity : Clear 
Flows came up again by 20cfs, this hasn't changed much, as the fishing remains good throughout the river. Most fish are being caught on indicator and euro nymph rigs with various Caddis and Baetis nymphs being the top producers.
There has been some good Caddis hatches in the afternoons making for pretty good dry fly opportunities! Hopper double dropper setups have also done well.
