As the river drops and keeps getting warmer try fishing early in the morning when fish can be more active. Stripping weighted flies and hanging beadheads under a bobber typically catch the most fish. Casting spinners across and downstream and slowly work them through deeper riffles and lower pools is also effective. Concentrate on pocket water and faster riffles as the temperature increases.

Camping is available and is a perfect time to hang out and have fun. The bag limit is 2 fish only one of which can be over 20 inches. 

With the water warming up this summer please land fish quickly, keep the fish in the water and do the best you can to release happy fish so we can enjoy them in the future.

Check the Oregon Water Resources Near Real Time Streamflow website for current flow information.
