Guide Report:

If you can brave the cold you might be surprised by what you find.  Our rivers offer some great fishing this time of year.  Those willing to throw on some extra layers to hit the water have been finding plenty of success with simple nymph rigs such as zebra midges paired with a small pat’s rubber leg.  Find yourself lucky enough to come across some rising fish in the afternoon and small midge patterns that you can barely see will be your best friend.  BUT… It’s always worth trying to stand out from the thousands of identical midges the fish are picking from.  Perhaps trying a couple sizes larger is all your willing to risk but you may find sending a BWO is a great way to get the attention of greedier fish.
