The water level agreement between environmental groups and the BOR/Irrigation Companies has been very positive, keeping the flow up at 84 to 85 cfs this winter. The fish are much healthier and safer because of this. As anglers, we appreciate the collaborative efforts it takes to get to this level.
Fishing has been good. The water is cold, but the fish are eating Eggs and Midges.
Keep in mind going into the next week we have some very cold weather coming. It may begin to freeze the river. Last year it would have because there wasnt enough flow to push out the ice, but this year it may need to get colder for longer. We will see…
If it freezes, the spring creeks (Fall and Metolius) don’t freeze.
