Low flows here and that means stealth and light leaders. Winter fishing can be good here as the pressure of the summer crowds are gone. Access is good all the way up to the last parking lot, just go slow and use caution as there are some large rocks in the road! With that, this downgrade in flows fishing here has got tough and the use of stealth an d light lines is required to fool the trout thru this stretch of water. Pressure may be High here as many still will pursue the big trout lure of this tiny tailwater. Trout here will be feeding on a steady diet of Midges and BWO/Baetis, so have all stages of these bugs in your box. The rule of thumb here has been 5x-6x depending on the situation. Fall backs to use are San Juan Worms when nothing else seems to work. Hint: the bigger fish in this system prefer emergers over adults most the time, so learn how to fish emergers effectively.
