Straight winter mode for the fish here, especially after the snow rolls through. The trout have become very opportunistic and egg patterns bounced along the stream bed are doing the trick. Go with some small mayfly emergers just prior to the mid-day hatch for some steady action. Smaller midge patterns are also getting takes. Fish are starting to concentrate more in the deeper pools.
Best Flies: Flashback PT’s #16-#20, Tricos Spinners #20-22, SD Crawlers in Red #14, Copper Tiger Midges #18-20, and #18 Assassin Dark, Tangerine Opaque, Kiwi Flash, and Apricot Flash Otter Eggs have been excellent.
