Well, Grey Reef saw another bump in flows last night and we are now sitting at 3,000cfs. Per usual, we are loving the increase in flows! We are now officially phasing out of baetis and making our way into the summer bugs. PMDs, caddis and sallies are making their way on to the menu. Love this time of year! Of course with the increase in flows we are starting to see more fish hugging the banks. Streamer fishing is definitely starting to pick up and we are even getting a few on dries when the bugs are popping.

If you are planning on heading this way make sure to buy your license before you arrive.
