Current River Flow Updates
Latest Update 6/29/2020 --
Flows below the lake are currently at 76.6 CFS as of 6-29. Flows are down for this time of year. Cheesman Reservoir is at 76% capacity so flows could stay low for a while. Fishing has been good on the edges and in riffles and deeper runs. Tandem nymph rigs with a worm, egg or Pat's Rubberlegs as the point fly with a Caddis or Baetis dropper have been bringing fish to the net. Don't hesitate to put a scud or cranefly in to the mix on your nymph rig to entice the canyon fish. Pat's in a variety of colors in sizes 10-12. Splatte rollers, buckskins, and wired caddis in 16's are a good choice right now. Dry Droppers, sight fishing in shallower water can be a ton of fun at these flows. Throw a small hopper and drop a black beauty (20) or Radiation Baetis in 20 or 22. There are some crowded days in the canyon right now so don't be afraid to hike in a little further to get away from other anglers.
