FISHING REPORT
Updated - 3/6/20

Current Conditions: Water levels are stable, clear and in good condition

Fishing remains very good: We've heard that the CDFW just planted a bunch of fish which should spice things up . . . not that it needed it.  Fish are on to midges in the mornings near the weed beds and small black Caddis are coming off in the afternoon.  Be ready for PMDs in the coming weeks. If you see a school of fish within casting distance drag a Wooly Bugger with a midge tied to a dropper slowly through the school , and watch out!
