December…..Mid way.

The flows have remained level but low. I always say the fish don’t care about the amount of flow, only the consistency. It has been fishy, but required a high level of play. At this time, change is in the air/sky. The storm door has opened, and WINTER……. is here. We will see a couple of feet over the next few days. Break out your snow shoes for easier access to the water. From here on we will see the flows come up….It will only get better. We are at 117cfs in town, and looking for 300cfs for better odds with spooky fish. The fun is just beginning! The bugs are pretty much the same for awhile….Midges and BWOs…Keep an eye peeled for risers. Don’t cast a lot. Try not to blind fish….find a fish, catch a fish. The first drift is your best shot. Tomorrow parking will be an issue. Don’t get stuck. Have a shovel with you in case. A tow strap is a good call. Locals might help, if you are equipt for it. Best to be smart……Give a shout if you are curious about winter fishing…I enjoy it more than mid-summer. Bring a change of clothes in case of a slip. It is always extra slippery at the beginning of winter. A staff might be a good call as well. Happy hunting.
