    Headed to Winthrop this weekend. Are there any river opportunities for trout? Looks like things open up on Saturday. Flows are still pretty high... is it just a lake game at this point? Would be fun to hit the water for a few hours.

    5200 cfs (and likely to rise) at Winthrop is extremely high so wade fishing will be nearly impossible. Lakes will be a better bet.

    Thanks Freestone, pretty much figured that. Will still pack the rod and see what happens.

    I am in the same boat. Hoping to fish the river. I'll be packing the rod and probably be spending more time at the old schoolhouse brewery than fishing :(
