February 25, 2013Midges, Rising trout

For those that wonder what our local cutthroat trout do in the winter, Sage will show you....

As you can see, the trout yesterday were very active. Not every day in February is like this on the Snake, but most days, provided the wind isn't blowing too hard, fish can be found sipping midges along various stretches of river. Activity can last anywhere from a brief 20 minute fury, to several hours like yesterday. On the Snake and Wind rivers, as well as other waters around here, surface action is usually found in slower water. Depth doesn't matter as much. I found fish yesterday in both deep, back-eddys, and also in a foot or less of slow, gin-clear water. Now through April is primetime for midge fishing around here. Grab your 6x tippet, tiny flies and patience, and see about fooling a few early season trout!
