March 12th Fishing Report

Much more rain than predicted has the creeks running murky as of noon.  While there is still some fishable water, things are ugly out there right now.  The good news is it should settle down by tomorrow and into the weekend.

Rain, mainly before 3pm. Patchy fog before 11am. High near 50. Breezy, with a south wind 17 to 20 mph becoming northwest in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 33 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
  A bit miserable today, then windy through tomorrow.  The good news is that is calms down and becomes pleasant for the weekend with highs right around 40.
Olives, midges, and a few winter stoneflies are hatching and emerging daily, and mid day the fish are starting to come to the surface to eat.  Otherwise, deep rolling scuds, and heavy thin bodied bead heads is still working just fine!
  Also, as the water temperatures stay at 40 or above, fish are becoming much more grabby on streamers and leeches.
Creeks are clear and will get a little stained up in the afternoons.  There is little to no snow on the banks and what is melting is in shaded areas and north facing slopes.
