The river flow is now at 760cfs and we don’t know how long they are going to run it at 700 but enjoy it while you can. 5x- 6x fluorocarbon tippet is best. Fishing slower moving water off of fast water is holding the most fish.
For nymph fishing a red larva or red annelid in size 20-22. Grey and black midges in size 20-22 or a crystal flash midge in size 20-22. Dead drifting a bunny leach in olive and brown resembling moss is working well.. grey and black foam back emergers size 20-22. Fish your midges hovering above the bottom around 6 to 12 inches you do want to be on the bottom when using midges.
For dry fly fishing midge clusters in size 18-20, When the sun starts to go down a foam hopper in the bigger sizes are good.
For streamer fishing a triolive and white and chartreuse zig jig are fishing great.
