Late season and winter fishing opportunities will include nymphing slow and deep with small mayfly patterns and midges during the warm part of the day. Try mayfly nymphs in sizes 16 to 20, like Two-Bit Hookers, Pheasant Tails, Micro Mayflies, Barr’s BWO Emergers, RS2s, and JuJu Baetis. Zebra Midges and midge larva and emerger patterns in various colors, sizes 18 to 22, can be trailed behind a mayfly nymph. You can also fish an egg pattern up front with a small mayfly nymph or midge behind it.
