2/1/2020 Stream Report

Water temperature: 41-42 degrees
Insect activity: Midges – moderate

Ventured out with a couple buddies today for my first trip of the new year. We started the day with some rare sunshine and clouds were back overhead by 1-1:30pm. We fished from 10:45am until about 2:30pm.

There were fish rising today, especially late morning in sunny stretches of the stream. There wasn’t enough activity to encourage any of us to try dry flies but a more motivated soul could have done alright, I suppose.

Fish were caught on Hare’s Ear, green and purple perdigons, small pheasant tails, and midge larva patterns. Despite a few rising fish, getting flies low enough was key to catching. A few fish were feeding in some of the faster runs, but most were in the slower tails.
