Parick, if there are running 2 or more generators, it will take about 4 hours or a little longer to get to Nances Ferry. The current schedule only shows pulses , so you won't see any rises in the water tomorrow at Nances, if that schedule stays as they are predicting. It takes about 1 hour for the water to run down if they are running wide open. This can vary a little depending on how much they are putting thru the turbines.

Patrick, look for hatching insects and check to see if you see any rises. If they are taking emerging insects the rise will not be splashy, but more of a dimple or break in the surface of the water. If their taking insects off the top, you will see more of a splashy rise and probably hear it as well. For dries on top try Tan Elk Hair Caddis or Olive CDC and Elk. For a dropper, try a Caddis Emerger or a Black Fly emerger. They might be looking at Creme Midges. Good luck and make some pictures if you can.

Patrick,
I was there this morning, and things were extremely slow. Finally around 11:00 just before they started generating some small midge action started. I tried some small cream and black midges (dry and nymph), but had no luck. The guys I went with each managed to pick up a couple of small trout on a size 18 BWO. I am unsure of the area we were fishing, but I believe I have seen it referred to as Buffalo Springs.

Good luck to you.

Travis
