February 26th Fishing ReportRegular morning hours tomorrow (Saturday) and Monday starts 7 days a week for the shop being open!
A 20 percent chance of rain after 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 41. Breezy, with a south wind 10 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
This weather has been just about perfect for fishing. It isn't getting warm enough to melt the snow and make things muddy and icy and the overnight temperatures are cold enough to lock snow melt back up.
You still have to fish before the melt hits the creeks. Rising water temperatures are perfect this time of year (and they have been hitting the magic 40 degree mark the past couple of days on some creeks) but once the snow starts to trickle in and drop temperatures, things shut down quickly.
There are some hatches of midges and winter stoneflies daily. It might take some time to find pods of rising fish, but they are out there.
More consistently, fishing heavy nymphs and scuds or leeches is catching fish.
