The Tailwater Report May 24th, 2019
Upper Grand Flows: 6.04 cms (normal flows for fishing 5-10cms. Fishable up to 20 cms with caution. )
Tailwater report: The tailwater has settled down is in perfect shape and fishing well.
Upper: Midges, 22-20’s and Bwo, 18’s are the main hatches at this time. Fish are beginning to react on the surface but nymphing with scuds, caddis, bwo nymphs, and chironomids are producing the most fish.
Middle: About the same as the upper with a good deal more bwo’s in the mix. Starting to see good numbers of Hendrickson’s through the middle sector.
Lower: Hendrickson’s are full on. Bwo’s and midges make up the rest of the mix.
Notes: The tailwater has been all over the place in terms of flows. Temperatures are lower than usual and the hatch activity has been slow to get going. Nymphing and streamers have been producing the majority of fish.
