April 21 2017
Raining all day today and expected to continue thru tomorrow. The Corp. released water for 7 hours today and all that muddy run-off was cleaned out but with no generation tomorrow, I can only assume that the river will be like chocolate milk, since it will be raining through-out the night tonight. Of course that's only speculation.
No generation is scheduled for Saturday or Sunday with only three (3) hours of generation scheduled for Monday morning.
Try fishing Twin Rock area adjacent to Parker Bottoms Campground, Cain Break, and The Turn-around as starters. Upstream from Parkers Bottoms in the Trophy Management Area, fly fisherman are reporting catching quality fish.
Reports are that walleye are being caught using jerk baits, count-downs and 1/8 ounch jig heads tipped with gulp scented baits.
Beware of low water conditions as the bottom is constantly changing as new gravel bars are everywhere.
Fish Hares Ears nymphs, sow bugs and midges in olive, blue dunn, black and gold.
Periods of generation have begun again after no running water since the 3rd of March. Fishing should be on fire after the flow slows. Always be aware of water conditions as water levels rise abruptly when generation starts.
