Looks to be pretty cold this weekend. Not cold enough to keep you off of the wage though. Hi’s nearing 30F. Much warmer than Christmas. A hi of 10F yesterday. Awful cold!
The reports from vacationing winter anglers have been good. Great nymphing with your favorite holiday flavor of PINK. Scuds, sows, Pink Lightening Bugs, Ninch’s BubbleYum, Barbie Nymph, Tailwater Sow, SWJ, and many more can round out your winter fly selection.
Water temps are holding in the damn cold range at 35F. It has dipped below the 35F mark to 34.5F this week. The water level is 3180cfs.
The swingers are getting cold feet with the cooler water temps. But the rewards are worth the frozen toes. You gotta give the fly some action in these cooler water temps. Without some intriguing motion the fish may not eat the baitfish. You oughta make the bait appear tasty.
Want to start the new year off with a guide trip? $400 nymph or spey trips all winter long.
