March 18th Fishing ReportSunny, with a high near 48. Breezy, with a northeast wind 18 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 36 mph.
Creeks are clear and flowing a touch low. Water temperatures are in the low 40s.
Fish are eating on the surface from mid morning to afternoon on midges, smaller foam flies, and klinkhammers.
Subsurface they are happily munching on pretty much anything! We are in the middle of our midge hatch, BWOs are coming very soon, and we have even seen quite a bit of interest in caddis larvae lately.
Leeches and streamers are effective as always, but the crystal clear water makes it difficult to fish anything but the broken water without spooking fish.
Snow is trickling into the creeks in the later afternoon slowing fishing down. You can get a solid 3/4 day in right now though starting at about 9 am.
