The weather has been super nice and warm with little rain and good releases
that have allowed anglers plenty of opportunity to wade. The water is still cold
and midges continue to be the main food you should be imitating. Sculpin
streamers should work when there is cloud cover.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain from tomorrow though
Saturday, then clearing. Highs will range from 43 to 64 degrees and lows from
26 to 46 degrees.

Blue-winged Olives: size 18 and 20, nymph, emergers, duns and spinners
