Water down, fishing good
The water is down to about 4,500. As the yamp goes up, they will turn it down more. As it goes down, they will turn it up. They have alot of water to move to take the snow pack from the wind rivers and the uintahs.
The fishing is good. Had good fishing on streamers, and blood midges. Over the last two days, I did not see any strong rise, althought there were some blue wing olives on the water in late afternoon. The fish just aren't looking up as there is so much food in the water.
The boating is easy wave trains. In the B below the creek it is blown out and discolored, so more boating than fishing. In the A, the more technical section at low water towards the flats at little hole is now very easy. There is nothing to miss because all of the rocks are under water.
For flaming gorge it seemed pretty empty. Alot of people are staying away because of the higher water.
The target for the combined flow of the green and yampa is 17 K according to the ranger, so that might give you a little help in forcasting what they will be runnning it at over the next 60 days.
