April 12th Fishing Report

Rain, with thunderstorms also possible after 1pm. Temperature falling to around 35 by 5pm. Breezy, with a northeast wind 10 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

A brief drop in temperatures until Thursday next week.  Cool to cold and some snow/rain over the area this weekend.  Ugly weather as a human, but it won't mess with trout too much.  Olives, midges, stones, craneflies, and one or two caddis are still hatching,  We are now at the point where cloudy days mean mayflies and midges and sunny days will start to mean caddis and cranes (still needs to be a touch warmer).

  Subsurface, anything heavy is working fished below the riffles in the shin to thigh deep water.  Leeches and streamers are always effective, but more so when the hatch is not coming off.
