Our section from Warm Springs to Trout Creek has been great for the guides here. We are seeing really good caddis action both on dries and pupa. Also some PMD’s & PED’s.
Water temps coming out of the dam are about 57 degrees. That temp holds well for several miles and is great for the trout in the upper stretch.
Steelhead counts coming through the dams on the Columbia are good. We expect a very good fall season of steelheading on the D!
With the Lower River suffering a lot of range fire damage and water temps hitting 70 down a the mouth we are not excited about that fishery at this time.
