The flush from the big runoff the year before cleaned out the river really well, allowing for a lot more insects to colonize the rocks, and the hatches were a lot larger and more diverse than other years. It is flowing low and crystal clear right now, but with flows around 18cfs the fish are really spooky. Cloudy crappy days it fishes bestright now when the flows are this low.
Thanks for the update. I hadn't read anything on how the river is fishing since the big fire, good to know the ash flow didn't wipe out all the fish.
