fishing’s been good lately!

I've been getting out there a couple days a week this winter and overall I'd say things have been pretty good! I dont do a whole lot of the tiny dry fly thing but I've seen 'em rising here and there.For the most part I've been finding them holding low in the riffles and a more dense population in the slower deeper water at the end of that riffle or in your favorite turn. The shelf ice hasnt been to bad on most of our local rivers and for the most part the slush clears up by noon. It's not just a tiny fly game either, I've been getting away with a lot of leech patters, size 10 Pat's Ruberrlegs and size 14 or 16 trailers. In those slower sections you can add a light sink tip and swing a smaller streamer, ibeen suprised with my results. So if you get out there here's a few flies that have been working for me. Good Luck and have fun! -Tyler
