Flows are up from 2900 CFS to 3900 CFs over the last 24 hours.  The flow increases are from the Cle Elum reservoir. This flow increase has added a bit of turbidity but nothing inordinate.

Prior to the rise….Average to Gooood fishing depending on the day lately. Clarity has been great throughout the system and currently is as follows…

6 feet – Upper Proper
5-6 feet – Upper Flatlands
5-6 feet – Upper Canyon
5-4 feet – Farmlands
3 feet – Lower Canyon

Bugs include….

Caddis, Yellow Mays, Drakes, Ants and Beetles



In good condition currently.  Water clarity/cycle is ranging from 2-3 feet depending on where and when on the river.

Fish counts are  below the 10 year avg on the year to date graph  But higher then last year!   …..Hopefully the trends stays the course!
