Leap Day Weekend Fishing Report

Creeks are clear and flowing just a touch low. Normal for wintertime.

Temperatures will hit the magic 40 degree mark today and tomorrow.  That will trigger some midge hatches and winter stonefly emergences.  Sunday gets quite warm and has a slim possibility of having olives hatch.

 Stick with heavy, dark bodied nymphs in the morning, then switch over to dries when the fish begin to rise.  Leeches and streamers will be great all day long with warming water as the fish will be a bit more active.

The key is to fish rising water temperatures.  Once snowmelt hits the creeks and the temperatures drop, fishing slows down and can shut down completely.
