General Overview

We've entered that awesome Early Spring time period on the Dream Stream. However, its acting more like Winter still, as temps have rarely risen above freezing in the last several weeks. For those of you hoping for some lake fish to enter the system, it really takes the ice to start to break to see fish move into the system heavily. In addition, with these temps, the ice flow can be substantial for much of the day. We will see some relief and some warmer temps in the next 10 days, and March will be awesome as usual, so get ready!

Stream Conditions

Flowrate above Elevenmile Reservoir: 64.9 cfs

Clarity: Clear

Clarity is strong and flows are currently in the average window

Suggested Methods

Its a midge fishery for the most part in the winter. You will be best suited to run a variety of attractor trico or BWO nymphs with a Midge Larva early and a Midge Pupa later on near the substrate. At times you'll find fish posted up feeding on adult Midges.
