Expect cold water if you are going to be float tubing. All lakes are ice free. Right now, the lakes are more of a bait and deep lure party, than fly fishing.
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good
With colder water of "ice-out" follow the cardinal rules of SLOW & DEEP, the PG-13 version of course, we're talking about fishing for trout here, right? Type 4 lines or denser should get you to the fish with a really slow retrieve. Make each cast count and keep the fly deep as long as you can. Not much in terms bug hatches, damsels and Callibaetis are still a long way off. Midges will get more active later in the spring about the time the fish move into shallower water.
Streamers like grey or black Zonkers and leech patterns such as D.R. Seal Buggers in brown, olive/orange and black, or good ol' Docs Twin Lakes specials in darker colors.
Guides Hint: Water is very cold and air temps can vary‚Ä¶ if it's windy it'll be cold‚Ä¶. if you are tubing wear lots of layers and warm socks
