March 4th Fishing ReportA chance of snow before 11am, then a chance of flurries between 11am and noon. Cloudy, with a high near 34. North wind 6 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
Lots of snow fell overnight. This later winter snow will slowly melt over the next couple of days. With temperatures this weekend in the low 30s, the chance of a massive melt off are very slim. The banks did not have much snow on them before last night, so it will not be too difficult to get around. Just give road crews some time to scrape the roads first thing this morning and really focus on fishing from 10-2 when water temperatures are the best.
We are still seeing midges and winter stones hatching daily, and lately leeches have been excellent with trout responding to them fished either dead drift OR with a slow strip.
Fishing scuds below the riffles right now is great too.
