Early spring fishing opportunities will include nymphing the deeper runs with big stonefly nymphs and small mayfly patterns and midges. Good stonefly nymphs include Pat’s Rubber Legs and 20-Inchers in sizes 6 to 10. For mayfly nymphs, try Two-Bit Hookers, Pheasant Tails, Micro Mayflies, Barr’s BWO Emergers, RS2s, and JuJu Baetis in sizes 16 to 20. Zebra Midges and midge larva and emerger patterns in various colors, sizes 18 to 22, can be trailed behind a mayfly nymph or stonefly nymph. Red midges are working well now.
