Snow has been falling on the upper parts of the river, this may make fishing above Natural Bridge tougher to wade. It may be best to stay below the East Fork.or even the West Fork. During this type of early winter weather the lower you are the better the fishing. Work your way up from Town access. Midges, mayflies and stoneflies are the typical winter nymphs.
