The warm weather and rain we’ve had through the past week has provided a break from Winter’s icy grip for now, and the fishing has improved as a result. Fish are a little less sluggish and more willing to feed on the small Midges and Mayflies that are present through the winter. The best approach is to fish these little Midge and Mayfly nymphs below a small indicator through the slow, deep runs which hold the best numbers of fish. Work the likely holding water thoroughly and be ready for light takes which sometime barely show on the indicator if at all. Afternoons provide some opportunity to fish dries, with Midges and BWOs coming off in varying strengths depending on the day. Look for the BWO action to be strongest on cloudy afternoons, the Midge hatch has been a little more consistent but often requires a willingness to work with tiny flies and light tippet to successfully imitate the natural insects and initiate a strike. This is the type of weather that provides the best fishing on the Crooked through the winter, so don’t hesitate to get out there.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!
