It’s great to see the numbers of fish that are still in the Fall right now, it was certainly a good Winter for sightfishing big rainbows close to town. We are seeing better numbers of active fish with the warming weather, and a few of our guides have had some really solid days on the Fall in the past week. BWOs and Midges are still the primary food source, and small nymphs have been our best producers. Streamers and large attractor nymphs are starting to get more attention, and are a great option for stubborn fish.
