Partly sunny, with a high near 48. South wind 7 to 15 mph becoming west in the afternoon.
Best case scenario, the rain is not predicted to fall at all today! That means the sun will warm things up again and we will have rising fish mid day!
Fishing has been quite good lately thanks to the sun in the sky. Between 9 and about 2 fishing is best as the water temperature climbs.
Make sure to use your thermometer! Although there is not enough snow on the ground to blow things out, it is still enough to put cold water into the system in the later afternoon. Once this starts happening and water temperature drops, fishing shuts down.
Creeks are clear and flowing with temperatures in the high 30s to mid 40s.
Midges and winter stoneflies are the main hatches/emergences. Look for bulging rises mid day and tie on a smoke jumper or unweighted pheasant tail.
Leeches have been lights out good most days this early season. Fish them slowly with a lot of twitches. The best subsurface flies have been pink squirrels, she hulks, copper johns, scuds, and pheasant tails.
The entire weekend looks good to be out fishing with temperatures between 40 and 50 degrees and sunny. Water temperatures are at a point that on Sunday we might (temps need to stay over 45 degrees) see some spring stoneflies and olives hatching too.
