Nov 21 Duranglers

Flows are low, so trout will be more concentrated in likely holding water. With colder weather, proper presentations are a must.
Full nymph rigs have been our choice with a caddis larva and mayfly or midge nymph combo. Watch for hatches midday, and if you get frustrated, throw a Chubby just to see what happens. With warmer days, fish a Euro rig or heavy nymph setup in faster heavier water.
Streamer fishing may have a good showing as well.
