    What conditions, the high flows? I like a rising river fish are always on the move vs a dropping river. Stable flows are first prize but it's a tailwater and changing all the time today's prime lie is tomorrow's crap lie that's what is so exciting about LM fishing everyday is different you can't plan ahead it's a daily approach well at least that's how I go about it.

    A whole bunch of us fishedord Nebo yesterday. Flows were around30 on arrival and only stsrted rising at about 11:30 in the morning. I know that Tiaan, ( Yella ) and Christo were planning on fishing untill around 3 pm, so maybe the can shed more light on the flows later in the day. wouldn't say tht the fishing was off the wall, but I'm pretty sure that nobody blanked.
    I managed 4 yellows and a muddie. Flies that worked were hot spots and for me a mustard caddis.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Herman the flow seemed to go higher, but it got rainy and cold so I left just a while after you. I dont know how chris went, but the fishing wasnt great for me in the higher flows after you left.
