Spring? Not quite yet. But, we’ve recovered from our sub-zero spell and things are looking warmer in the forecast. The river is iced up in town. It’s been melting towards the afternoon, but water temperature are low and the fishing is relatively slow. You best bet is to head up river. You can expect some fantastic dry fly fishing using midges and we should see BWOs as we get closer to April. If they aren’t rise because you got there too late, get some heavy nymphs and plunk them behind the boulders for some steady action on a good mix of rainbows and browns. The 12 inch egg eaters are very active right now so it shouldn’t be long until the bigger fish are eating the brighter patterns. Right now you can count on the trusty girdle bug and worm/PT/prince/egg/midge to get the job done. Streamers are always an option as well. Try something big and bright for a big brown. You’ll make a lot of casts this time of the year, but if you can slow it down in the deeper water you are in the game.
