Highlight: Valley has dropped back into a nice flow for this time of year.

Fishing Overview: Nymphing with small mayfly and midge imitations will be your best tactic. Midges and BWO's will still get fish looking up and rising in the right conditions. Focus on nymphing slower, deeper water as the temps continue to drop.

Specifics and Tips: Keep a low profile and work your way upstream. Long leaders and 6x will be your best bet if you're casting to rising fish. While fish will certainly eat some bigger patterns, smaller flies usually produce more consistent action.

Hatches: Blue Wing Olives (18-24)
Midges (18-24)


Hot Patterns: Zebra Midges 18-22
