Midges and Baetis the Ticket

Mountain Hardware & Sports

Report Date:


With this stretch being a Tailwater fishery it will serve those looking for their fix more so than the Big T tough conditions. The LT can be very productive during the winter months as long as there is access and as far as I know the road here has some difficult spots in it that will require 4 wheel drive. With the impending weather for Friday and the rest of the week to Christmas road conditions could get worse. Trout here will be feeding on a steady diet of midges and baetis so have all stages of these bugs in your box. The rule of thumb here has been 5x to 7x depending on the situation. Good luck!
