    Default Elk River Temperature

    Does anyone know if the recent spilling of 2700cfs at Tims Ford is raising the temperature of the Elk above what trout like? I'd like to know before I make the long drive down there this weekend. Thanks

    I don’t know the answer, but I have been twice in the last few weeks and the water has been nice and cold. So I believe you should be okay and have a productive trip. I just saw they are back to 240. Good luck.

    Answering my own question...I went the day after posting and at Farris Bridge, the temp was 68. A bit warm so the spilling definitely elevated the temperature but we did OK and the fish seemed to be healthy. For comparison, I went again to Farris on June 19 and the temp was 61-62. Again, caught a fair number of trout and they all appeared healthy.
