It’s a solid winter bite here lately and for whatever reason, light angling pressure. My favorite days here are smack in the middle of a snow storm, but all the days around them are great too. Some nice browns are chewing in all the usual deep holes now. Throw bigger flies if you’re after that trophy winter fish, but don’t be surprised when your smaller bug gets slurped up by that giant too. Otter eggs, #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal have been great patterns to hang. SJ worms and Drifters’ Crawlers also working well.
