The nymph fishing yesterday and today was really good in certain areas of the river. The river went up to 8750 cfs at 4pm today and is going up another 750 cfs tomorrow (5/27) to 9500 cfs. Fish the soft deeper edges of the runs where you can find them. On overcast days the streamer fishing has been productive with bright streamers and sink tips. The wade fishing spots are harder to come by with every bump in flow.

Sowbugs patterns in grey and tan have still been the ticket. The worm has fished well in the lower river especially while the river is on the rise. Soap Creek is still putting mud in the river and mountain pocket creek around mile 6 cleared up today after running very dirty yesterday.
