There are places to wade when the generators aren't running. Near the dam and also down around Parkers bend are the easiest places to wade. I've tried a few off the wall flies that have yeilded a fish or two but nothing consistant. Most successfull for me is throwing olive wooly downstream and stripping back up. Beatiful river...catching fish is often a challenge (for me anyway)

Olive wooly seems to be the way to go...Nymphing is hard to do without 7x tippet.
