Hello everyone, the river flow is around is 475cfs. The water clarity is about 6-7 ft. Fishing has been good. There is still some moss in the waters above death row, but from there on down the river is pretty clean. The upper waters are having a midge hatch in the am. Some blue wing olives mid afternoon below the T-hole.
