Hello Everyone!  Wanted to stop by and see if anyone has been fishing the LIR?  I will be down there this weekend and am curious how it's been.  First time fishing it this year, so I'm ready.  

I used to fish down there a few times a year, but since the past few years flooding, haven't made it down.  Seems like it hasn't been the same for me since then.  Might just be me though. :)  

Maybe I'll catch a few of you down there on Sat or Sun.

Not sure how much you've heard about the LIR since the flooding, but basically the river has been chocolate milk since it's been fishable again. It's slowly been clearing, but as of my last trip which was end of July it was still pretty murky, although more of a green than a brown if that makes any difference. I've had pretty good success this summer drifting a black or brown woolly bugger, sometime both in tandem, on the bottom either dead drift or a slow strip back upstream. I'd focus on fishing closer to the dam than the Watts area.
