The water has lowered to the winter level I think - it is very very low. There wasn't much, if any, current at the regular hole. This made it somewhat difficult to cast to rising fish since it would take a long time to get a drift past a fish. That, coupled with the early wind, made casting to a small spot difficult. There were tons of fish rising though - very very impressive. I started fishing around Zak's rock and was easily able to wade around the entire area thanks to the lower flows. I caught 6 of my fish there, then caught one more up by Rock Island. 7 fish in under 2 hours is pretty good, but I had some serious dead time where I wasn't catching fish and they were rising everywhere. The lack of current required you to cast directly above a fish; otherwise if you casted too far upstream you'd have to wait an hour for the fly to drift down in front of them. The wind made casting accurately difficult.
