March 2nd Fishing ReportMostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 38. West wind 7 to 9 mph.
Today is the coldest day this week! Every other day is forecasted to be in the 40s!!! This is what we look for in winter fishing!
Yesterday got warm enough to see olives hatching, and the fish fed with abandon. There are still midges and a few winter stoneflies around, but outside of adding some olive dries to the mix, you do not have to change things up drastically.
Nymph wise, anything 16-20 in black, brown, or dark olive with a slim profile matches every bug right now. Dry wise, your single bodied midge adults and BWO patterns are the ticket.
Do not neglect leeches and streamers, with the water temperatures warming up a bit, the fish are more active.
