David was on the river yesterday. The midge fishing continued to be the name of the game. Blue Winged Olive’s were present, but the trout seemed to be keyed in on the midge larva and pupa. The weather as of late has come back down to more normal temperatures for this time of year. As spring arrives look for the air and water temp’s to rise and the baetis hatch to get stronger.
