Feb 06 Duranglers

Flows are low, and its winter fishing. This time of year can be pretty cold and fish will be moving slowly, but if you get your depth right you will find a few eaters. Snow melt may cause bumps in flows
Small midge and mayfly nymphs along with caddis larva are a good go-to. Fish will be holding in deeper water.
On water days, fish may be looking up to the occasional midge hatch, and dont discount a slow fished streamer.
