There is so little snow on the ground that it’s hard to call this a winter. The fishing conditions right now may be the best all year………That’s the good news. The river is very clear and mid 40s. We have been catching fish regularly. Mostly bows, but a few browns too….It’s been the usual small bug menu. Baetis mayflies, and Midges….I love fishing midges because the fish like to eat them, by the hundreds. Always carry a dry rod rigged as well, because the fish may just start rising……A sz 20 Burk’s silhouette Dun is spot on for our Baetis hatch. All you need is a good drift.   I suspect this is the main thing that people who go fishless are missing…….Give a call if I can help you through this sticking point.

The flows are back up for the moment I say fish now!!!!
