Blowin’ in the wind..

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.
