  • Flow: 73.7 ft³/s
  • Water Level: 4.25 ft

USGS

Summer Flows

Wadeable flows at about 80 cfs out of the dam.

Fishing has been…ok.  Close to the dam is where a lot of fish congregated with such low flows the past few years, however, there are reports of stocking.

Hopper/Dropper combos are a go-to but watch for good mayfly hatches as well through the summer.
