Flows are running off color due to the recent weather events. Look for Midges and BWOs to be coming off once the day starts to warm up and the sun gets on the water. March Browns should be beginning to appear soon as well. Watch foam lines for sipping feeding fish. Nymphing with black, brown and coffee colored rubber leg patterns like girdle bugs and Pat’s rubber legs, as well as similar colored stonefly patterns should produce, particularly in cloudy water. Black and darker color streamer patterns like the Grinch or a black bugger are a good option as well. For dry fly action to rising fish, try a smaller size Purple Haze, Parachute Adams, or Griffith’s Gnat.
