My friend Gary and I took a trip up Highway 88 on Friday 8/15 in search of some fishable water. We had heard that the flow in Blue Creek was around 8 CFS, shich sounded a little skinny to us. We decided to stop and take a look at Red Lake Creek in the meadow by the red corral. What we found was water that was very off-color with algae, apparently coming from Red Lake itself. We tried our usual suspect flies and did not have that much luck. We did not have a rise until just before 10:00.
