Green drakes are beginning to fade out on the lower river. Not many gray drakes have made an appearance to date. Hopefully that is changing. PMD and caddis life cycle patterns are working just fine.
On the upper river green drakes are coming on but not yet peaked. PMD activity is good and attracting fish. Flow out of Island Park Dam was raised on Thursday from 1000 cfs to 1160 cfs and is holding there. There are likely as many fly-fishers as fish in the Last Chance-Harriman State Park stretch of river with fewer visits in the Harriman East, Riverside and Coffee Pot stretches.
