Fished the Ark in town on Sunday for an hour.

Had the river to myself and didn't seen anybody in the parking lot until I was leaving. Weather was cool with overcast skies and little to no wind.

Fishing was incredible. The flows are up, but the fish are still pretty much in the same places, just holding deeper. There was a great BWO hatch and topwater fishing was insane.

I started out nymphing and picked up a few on a red copper john and a midge pattern I tied up, but most of my fish were on dries.

Of course, the fishing would be great! I was only granted an hour to get some fishing in before I had to spend time with the fam for Easter.

I'd recommend you get out there and take advantage of some of the hatches before the flows jump again.

Ah, the elusive mud trout, be careful not to get those things in the water, it'll wash off all the protective slime. >:D

people have been saying that tailwater is really producing, but I still can't shake the image of the 40 lb frozen beaver I nearly tripped over in the water there.

You saw a frozen beaver?!?!

I did too...but a different species. Lucky I had my polarized glasses on or I never would have seen it. The one I saw was a redhead on glossy paper floating through the water. Later as I was leaving, I noticed another fisherman pull it out and admire it. I almost snapped a picture of it, but I didn't want to be the creepy guy looking at porn down by the river.

Funny the crap you find down there...
