Current River Conditions

Fishing has been ok as of late, water levels are rising quickly and bringing stained water. Finding fish isn't an issue as they're sitting in their regular spring lies. But, the dirtier water has been making it hard for them to see your flies. Nymphing with brighter, bigger nymphs has been working well. It won't be fishable too much longer so be ready to fish tailwaters soon.
