Winter…..

Smokin!

Mornings have been nippy, but smoke on the water means time to fish! We are into small bug season……Baetis are our friends now, when a cloud passes overhead they appear…
Midges are ubiquitous…….fish them……JUJUs..zebras..tan, white, black, it doesn’t matter…..
Water is in the mid 40s and dropping….but a streamer will still move a hungry fish.
At these flows (1010cfs) Czech nymphing is a good call…..they are under your rod tip.
We have gone to longer leaders do to water volume….12-15ft.
You will need more weight………2 BBs won’t cut it….
Not much wading going on right now, the only time I get my feet wet, is to land a fish….and just barely….a long handle net isn’t a bad call.
Do not let a little cold stop you from fishing, I don’t!
