Some Â were caught at Jerome rd rapids as well. Today the river temp is up almost 8 degrees from yesterday, and the level remains steady , clarity is good and its going to be in the mid 40s this afternoon. Â Conditions are good and we expect to see a good push of fish head up stream . Some rain would help . As you can see by the photos the action picked up pretty good as the day progressed. Bright colors were working well .
