January 7th Fishing Report

Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high near 28. North wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the morning.
Catch and release season opens today!
  While the weather isn't excellent, it is just nice enough to get out and try to get a fish or two if you are in the area.  We do not suggest driving too far for these conditions as it just isn't prime winter opportunity.
  There are some areas of shelf ice on the shaded creeks, and the snowpack is medium to low on most creeks.
The creeks themselves are running clear and cold with temperatures in the lower 30s to mid 30s.
The key to winter fishing is making sure you are fishing rising water temperatures.  That means mid day from appoximately 10-2.  As the waters warm up a bit, the stream bed life becomes active (midges mostly) and the fish will turn on and feed.  Once the temperature starts to drop, things taper off pretty quickly.
