The river flows have been bumped over the past few days. The fish have been temporarily displaced and the floating moss has is an issue from top to bottom. Look for the flows to stabilize in the next few days and the fishing to pick up again. We had a short dry fly window today, and caught some nice fish on baetis dries. The surface feeding was not widespread and the fish were selective.
