Skimpy dump…..

We achieved another dusting of snow……. A skimpy 1/4″ of the white stuff.
It will melt by Monday, more than likely.
The river will rise a bit and go slightly off-color for a day.                                                               Next two days will bring wind out of the East…..
It’s back to fishing on Tuesday, after it goes westerly again.
For some reason I catch fewer fish when it’s from the East.
How does that affect the fish???????
Probably pressure difference…..
All I know is the pattern….
We need to watch for these “signs” to fish well……

Did an undisturbed bug seine yesterday during the “storm”.                                               Came up with many swimmer Baetis nymphs sz18-20.                                                                A few clinger Mayflies. sz18-20 (None hatching)                                                                          In the disturbed seine, free-ranging Caddis sz 18-20.                                                                    A couple of Lrg Golden stone nymphs…….                                                                                   San Juan worms, 18-20….(read aquatic annelid)….White /brown /red.                              Water temp is 39-40, Air temp will swing from 37-54+ this week.

It really is a beautiful time to be outside…….fish now.
