you can wade the stream. If one is running, you can wade the stream in places but
floating it would be the preferred method.
Hatches of various species of Blue-winged Olives are possible in the afternoons and
more likely and in greater quantities if the skies are cloudy or overcast.
Fish the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers anytime.
Winter stoneflies will start hatching soon.
Black Flies are hatching.
Midges are hatching and will become more and more important as the water gets colder.
