Flow out of Palisades Dam was dropped to about 9500 cfs last Tuesday. That’s still a bit higher than normal, and Palisades Reservoir is at about 27% of capacity. That percentage means more drops in flow are coming soon and for sure. Slamming the banks with chernobyl and hopper patterns and hopper-dropper combinations and two-nymph rigs drifted into riffles seem to be most productive ways to fishing success currently. Early AMs are the times when mutant stonefly patterns are successful.
Be aware that there is a fire in Black Canyon at the end of the river road above Heise.
