Fishing Conditions

April 23, 2018

 The nymphing has been good. If you are going to nymph it up the bite has been best with small midge patterns. Zebra midges, juju midges, and anything else in that smaller category should get you into fish. Tailwater bugs such as scuds and sow bugs can also get you into a few fish. Small leeches have been fishing well as well. Dont be afraid to twitch them by the undercuts. The conditions are finally where they need to be for Spring Baetis. Before you leave the house make sure your B.W.O. box is in your pack.
