5-Day Outlook as of 2/22/24
The Dream Stream is still low, and probably will be through the winter season. Water temps will remain high with the reduction of flow coming out of Spinney. Focus on fishing during the morning hours and give the fish a break.The very low flows will limit how many fish come up from Elevenmile Reservoir to spawn. Please leave spawning fish alone!
