Normal……

One thing fly fishing can teach, is there is no normal………you fish what nature offers…..
Not fish like last year, or when you fished as a kid……I find this is one of the hardest lessons for fishers. We all want it the way it was……….
I get out almost every day, and can feel changes…….
This is the worst winter I have experienced in forty years of living in the Sierras.
We never got a foot of snow in town…..the contract snow removers are making out like bandits. Any snow remaining around 6000 feet is in shade.
It’s freezing at night, which is good. But sooooooo warm during the day. 50’s feel like 70’s.
The fishing is as good as it will get this year, right now!!!!!!
Beautiful feisty fish that will play, but will be hard to find in a few months…………..      Water temp hovers around 42-43. Clear/green color………..
Flows below the LT confluence are very nice.
Fish are eating Midges by the thousands…..
Looks like a snow storm at times….and millions on the water too…..
Bring Zebra midges, and Griffith’s Gnats. Watch for risers!
Flows are low and water is clear, be a little sneaky, don’t wade much…….
Swinging streamers is a blast too.
Think midge/Baetis for droppers under da bobber.
Skwallas are coming in a couple weeks at this rate……buy/tie them now……
Have had a wonderful time walking the water with clients and friends……
My best advise……….FISH NOW!!!!!!!!!!
