Every year it seems that the fishing begins to pick up on the Snake river around Valentine's Day. Sure, fish (primarily whitefish) can and are caught earlier on nymphs, but mid February seems to be when the cutthroat become more active. This year is no exception.
Temperatures warmed this weekend and Sage and I set out to see what the trout were up to. Our theories were confirmed and trout were caught. Midges were all over the banks and water, but the howling wind made dry fly fishing tough. After a short battle, I decided to take a different approach- streamers. The fish liked them and I liked fishing them. Here's a few photos from today's outing.
