Water Conditions: Good

Flows are at 111 cfs as of 12/5

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:  Fair-Good

The weather systems just keep rolling thru but they're calling for an extended break starting Monday. As of now it is still drivable on the main road, we'll see if that's true after this weekend. With the sporadic hatches and both planters and lake fish moving upstream try attractor patterns such as San Juan Worms, Prince Nymphs, Copper Johns and streamers. Remember that the fish moving out of Crowley have had a summer of larger food so don't be afraid to use larger patterns.
