Colder weather have kept flows low and clear. That is likely to change quickly once we string together a few warm days. Fish a rubber leg nymph pattern like a girdle bug or Pat’s rubber legs in black, brown or coffee color along with a beadhead trailer fly like a prince nymph, hare’s ear, batman or pheasant tail. Look for midges and BWOs to be coming off. If fish are on them on the surface, a smaller size parachute adams or purple haze should do the trick. A Zebra Midge or smaller size pheasant tail trailed off of spotter dry fly should work as well. Also try basic buggers in black and olive or the Grinch for streamers.
