Inflow into Lake Koocanusa –  3340 cfs

River Flow -4,000 CFS , 10-foot visibility, Water temp 42 degrees. River scheduled to me low for the next week or so.

Hatches: Chironomids and Little Blue Quills in the warmer afternoons.

Patterns: Nymphs and Streamers are the main course of action, slow drifts and dead drifts in the deep slower runs. Some dry fly activity in the afternoons.

Guide and Fish Report: We are still seeing some large fish moving to streamers. Slower retrieves and dead drifts are the ticket with the lower water temps of winter setting in.
