Flow out of Palisades Dam has been ramped down to 3980 cfs ( now 4610 cfs at Heise, 2380 at Lorenzo). This makes for even more wading locations. Even with the wind this is good BWO conditions up and down the river. There are plenty of sheltered spots along the river, especially in side channels. Don’t forget to have streamer patterns in that fly box; they are becoming more effective each day this time of year.
Chad Larson (208-346-1459) tells us Thursday evening he lost a green & black Cabela’s backpack between Kelly’s Island and Wolf Flat. Contents include a Pfleuger reel, multi-compartment box of flies, dual sided snap box of flies, and assorted tools. Chad would much appreciate recovery if you find this item.
