Was down here a couple of days ago prior to the snow. Things were great! BWOs were hatching around noontime, and they were pretty sizable. Fish were mainly keyed on small midge patterns although I did get a few grabs on some smaller BWO dries. Still hooking fish on Scuds, Midges and baetis patterns under the bobber or tight lined as well.
