  • Fished Whitewater today, Day 1 of the extended season. The air temperature at 8AM was 34 and the water temperature was 44 degrees. By 10AM the sun was over the bluffs and warming things which may explain some aggressive subsurface feeding in runs and riffles. Rainbows and browns were taking my pink squirrel and a few on the zebra midge training fly. Things slowed down in the middle of the day, but trout were looking up and were fooled by a size 20 parachute Adams. Gorgeous fall colors in the bluffs.
