Cold on Sunday

I went out east of town Sunday and it was cold! I fished from about 1pm to 4pm and when the ice was too much to break off my eyelets I decided to call it quits. I didn’t hook up with anything and lost a couple rigs on the bottom, but that’s where the fish are when it’s cold like that. Take your time and try to fish the slower deeper water. You’ll need to get your stack within a few inches of the fish’s nose so that means getting near the bottom. Be prepared to retie and bring plenty of small midges and mayflies… Last November I hooked up with a 27” brown on an olive slump buster, fished deep and slow… but it wasn’t as cold as it was last weekend. It looks like the high is going to be in mid 40’s for a while and this weekend it’s probably going to be pretty wet. The flows have been jumpy throughout the day but they’re not bad right now. Just fish low and slow…
