River Flow 696 CFS - Visibility Clear - AM Water Temp 33'F. - Scattered snow showers, mainly after 2pm. The snow could be heavy at times. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 20. Wind chill values as low as zero. Northwest wind 9 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. - These are the perfect conditions to rig with sink tips and swing big streamers for Rainbows and Browns !! - As the water level drops a little bit more; start nymphing the water with big Stone Fly nymphs or San Juan Worms with an Egg dropper. - At this time of year it's best to get on the river a little later in the morning. - This gives the sun a chance to warm up the river a couple degrees. - The fish will become more active in the slightly warmer water.
Try nymphing deep with a two fly rig.- On your two fly nymph rig start with Rubber Leg Stone Fly nymph or San Juan Worm and an Egg Pattern as a dropper. - Fishing Streamers is a great way to cover water and to find big fish. - Swing big streamers behind exposed boulders and thru all the deeper riffles & pools. - Then go back and nymph right on the bottom over any river section that produced takes on streamers.
