While winter tying is making for the majority of my winter fishing thoughts, I’m still trying to get out whenever the weather breaks for a bit to get some fish to bite. The typical winter setups have been working well enough so that I’ll leave them on rather than switch them with my fridgid fingers, and a worm paired with a smaller nymph has been my favorite. In a quick hour session yesterday we got them to eat buggers, worms, and prince nymphs in slower than walking speed water, though we had some grabs in the faster stuff as well. The open water is beginning to get less and less available, but there’s always a way. August’s water is already stacking up in the hills, with more predicted for the week. Keep it coming, snow gods, we’ll take all you can dish out. For now, a few fish in the cold is good enough for me.
