March 12th Fishing Report

Sunny, with a high near 46. Northwest wind around 6 mph.
 Sunny and mild again tomorrow then a storm starts to roll in Sunday evening.
Creeks are clear and flowing a touch low with temperatures in the low 40s.  Midges are hatching well, and some winter stoneflies are around too.  Olives are expected to show up at anytime now that most of the snow is gone and water temperatures are starting to stabilize a bit.
 You can fish a bit earlier and a bit later in the day now too since 'runoff' is mostly done.
Fish are a bit spooky with the clear water and clear sky, so approach your spots with stealth and caution!
 Try a hippie stomper with a purple drank or scud tied below it.  You will be surprised at the fish hitting the larger foam dry right now!
Subsurface fishing has been good on pretty much anything.  Fish leeches and streamers early, then as things warm up a bit switch to nymphing below the riffles.
