Fly fisherman are wise to monitor river flows and adjust their strategies accordingly. On the Upper Grand, river flows are published live by the GRCA and can be viewed here.

Another handy way to monitor stream flows is to add an app to your smartphone such as River App, then select the rivers you wish to monitor.

Here’s the link to the full article from Hatch Magazine on strategies for clear versus high water conditions and how to adjust your strategies, particularly your retrieve. The Season opens in just four months from now! Tight lines.
