Steelhead: Classic Wet Fly Swing in runs and tailouts, Indicator Nymphing through boulder fields.

Seven-day forecast 

Flows are currently around 2550 cfs (at Mehama) and are predicted to drop to 2100 cfs before bumping up again mid-week, them dropping by the weekend. These are great levels for both fishing and boating.
