Flow out of Palisades Dam dropped another 500 cfs to 11700 cfs last night. This is going in the right direction to bring more gravel bars and islands into fishing range. Fish are beginning to move into riffles, but they remain a bit picky. So bring life cycle patterns for PMDs, sallys, caddis, even some small renegades (#14-16). A further golden stone emergence is going on above Cottonwood and mutant stones should be moving soon. Terrestrial patterns are also increasing in importance. We’ve had a few reports of success with hoppers, but the best is yet to come.
