Fishing has been slow here but anyday on the water is a good day! For the fly fisherman your best option is to cast a double nymph rig with scuds, egg patterns, and zebra midges. Strip in with a slow retrieval for best results. Also, make sure and add plenty of weight to your rig for best results.

The fishing is slow.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
