Beautiful weather ahead for the week. Cold morning’s make for slow starts but the afternoons have been great. Look for hatches to be strongest 11-3pm.
Techniques & Tips as of 2/26/24
Nymphing has been our go to lately, small baetis and midge emergers. There has been some dry fly action on tricos early in the morning. Olive or natural streamers might trick some of the bigger fish around.
