Rafters do a casual start, if you go early, fishing is good, and noone on the water.
The last hour is pretty good too.
Fishing more frothy water now, very small nymphs work well.
Weekdays are best.

Yeah seems when the temps get up they like the oxygenated stuff. Been finding fish in the lower river to be eating emergers and softhackles as well as streamers. Been going early morning til about 10 and then the last hour or two of daylight. We should get out and fish sometime.
