March 2nd Fishing ReportSunny, with a high near 41. Breezy, with a southwest wind 15 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
Today is the last windy day. After this, things calm down quite a bit. It is getting just warm enough to melt snow on the banks of the creeks, but not enough to runoff and make them muddy. Overall creeks are clear and flowing well.
Pay attention to water temperature! You want to fish as water temperature climbs. Once the snowmelt starts to trickle into the creeks it will drop temperatures causing fishing to shut down.
We are seeing midges, winter stoneflies, and even some BWOs hatching mid day. Fishing the size 20 user friendly has been deadly on the surface lately!
Subsurface fishing is best on smaller, thin bodied bugs such as perdigons and spanish bullets. Do not neglect small streamers and leeches as they can get some larger fish to eat this time of year!
