I’m enjoying the weather this month…..so warm. It was cold enough to do in the Grass Hoppers till next May. We have arrived at the Winter menu. BWOs and Midges are the mainstay till February when the Skwalla’s return. In fact, I got out the materials to twist up a few for clients and myself. It is a bad day when you go to the store for flies and they are sold out. Tye now to avoid this horror…… The flows have come down again to a gentile flow. 200cfs in town, so I might drive a bit to find more water. 300cfs in the canyon. Color is green/clear, and the temp is warming slightly to upper 40’s low 50s. When the sun hits the water it is game on for bugs. Before sunup, and after sundown a streamer might work…… Heard anyone fishing below the hamlet of Hirschdale is likely to get cited by the landowner. He’s a real pip.
I recommend breaking out the winter gear like snow shoes and getting ready, because this fine weather will come to an end eventually. No hurry though…… Thanks to the follower who made it total of 212…..now I want number 213…..
