Middle Fork Feather River Report
The MFFR is fishing well but the river is in it's Summer time flows, water temps are in the low 60's in the morning and nearing 70 degrees in the heat of the day. Fishing early in the morning and late in the evening is your best bet. Also find shady areas of the river, and fish below feeder creeks that are still providing cold water. Many fish can be found on the bottom of deep holes keeping cool as well. There is a decent blue wing olive spinner fall in the am and swinging egg laying adult soft hackles in the riffles has been very productive. In the evening you can expect caddis in sizes 12-18, and there is a good hatch of pale evening duns size 12.
