Above Menan (640x480)

Flow out of Palisades Dam has been stable since Wednesday at just under 17000 cfs  (16300 cfs at Heise, 8900 cfs at Lorenzo), and the reservoir is 100% full. All kinds of  bugs (big and golden stones, PMDs, sallies, caddis) are flying as far upstream as the canyon.  Fish are not on these big time yet as flow at this level still brings them enough drifting nymphs and annelids so less energy is needed to grab ’em than that needed to go to the surface. So what we recommend as strategy in the last few fishing reports  remains good for now.   The safest and most numerous places for walk in-wade fishing are below the Big Feeder which is taking off enough water to give more numerous wading opportunities below.
