Don't wait, go now. The fishing is incredible. Just got back from fishing there and had two of my greatest days ever. Purple SJWs, annelids and small egg patterns worked all day for me.

Nice Teaser! How was the water clarity? Bunch of junk in the river?
Bows and or browns?

I would think that right by the spillway all the fish would move closer to
shore out of the super fast water?

Thanks for the heads up.

The water clarity was about a foot after the end of the flush at 10:00 AM. By mid afternoon, clarity was up to 3 feet. The flush only goes between midnight and 10:00 AM so the fish have all day to gorge themselves on the bug life flushed out of the after-bay and the silt in the river. They stack up in the runs so I had a problem with foul hooking them in certain situations. If you foul hook one of the bigger rainbows, you're into your backing real quick. I had to have another fisherman across the run net my fish and remove the hook because the fish was so far downstream. I gave him credit for half a fish.

All of the fish I caught were brightly colored rainbows. My buddy only caught one brown and the rest were 'bows. There was one fisherman (obviously new to the sport) who was concerned that one of his trout was so "brown".

The browns will start spawning right after the end of the flush on the 26th. Everyone, please don't step on the redds. Let those little guys grow up to be caught in a few years.

Do the browns really spawn in the spring in this water?

I think he means the bows are spawning.

Mr.Charles is correct, I meant rainbows. Thanks for catching that.

That would be crazy to have all the differnt species of trout spawning at the same time.
Again. Great Info!
