Discharge from Libby Dam is currently 14000cfs and will remain steady throughout the day. But a big change is coming! Beginning tonight flows will be reduced by 2000cfs per night through August 31 to achieve discharge of 9000cfs. On the night of August 31, flows will be reduced 500cfs per night to arrive at 6000cfs by September 5. 6ooocfs will be held steady through September to accommodate downstream sturgeon restoration efforts this fall. What does this mean? With half as much water in the river the fish are obviously less spread out and more concentrated and we’ll likely see some big fish that have been hiding in the depths of higher flows. Wading will also be in play up and down the river. On the other hand, get out the twelve foot leaders since with less water they can sure get spooky. But hoppers and terrestrials will still be in play as well as caddis and pmd spinners throughout the next week. Get out there and get your feet wet!
