flows out of the dam are sitting around 303CFS and the reservoir is sitting at 75%. River is pretty much ice free and ramps are clear as well. Warmer day time temps have fishing starting to stage.

Portneuf: river is in great shape and fishing well above lava. Snow hasn’t totally drifted everything in yet.Nymph wise 14-18 zebras, frenchies, and scuds are doing the trick. Still some fish will to chase a mid sized streamer.
