While it is big on the lower end, releases from Lake McCloud are a steady 250 CFS and the tributaries are adding an additional 300 CFS by Ah-Di-Na. The clarity on the lake gage is very good, so this should be a good option. The road in to Ash Camp is open and the only thing you should keep an eye on is Highway 89, we have one more storm heading our way this weekend and after that it will be warming up. A walk-in customer reports you can get in to Ah-Di-Na, be prepared for fallen trees and other obstacles if you go. There has been some good midge and Blue Wing Olive hatches, nymphing with the small, black flies is the best way to hook up. The BP Weiss, Two-Bit Hooker, and black Micro May are all working. Other good flies to throw right now are Rubberlegs, brown or black in #6 or #8, Perdigons and Olive Hotspots. This spring should be a great one. Cloudy days will bring the Green Drakes out, and then the PMDs. To reserve a day with one of our expert guides to experience one of the most picturesque streams in the north state, call Chris or Bryan in Outfitters at (530)222-3555.
