The section below the monument will close after today. Above the bridge will be open through the rest of the winter season. Some larger rainbows have made their way into these sections. Fish egg patterns and crystal leeches along the undercuts and in the deeper pools. Water is cold, so get those imitations right in front of their noses. Water is clear so have a stealthy approach and don’t get too close to these larger fish while casting. Lots of smaller sized fish in the mix as well. Look for fish sipping small midges in the eddies.
