Sensational for big fish. Check out the beasts taken on recent guide trips here. Numbers are a tad down from last year but should improve as Crowley gets iced over. There is a fair showing of midge sippers feeding on top during the late mornings in the eddies and soft water. Nuke the deeper pools with flashback PT's, crystal tigers or zebras, egg patterns and broken backs fished under an indicator as tandem nymph rigs. Cover the water with streamers from an upstream position and do a lot of walking. Hit a section with three casts and if you don't get bit...move on! Loebergs, Spruce-a-bu's, Vanderleeches #8-10. Keep your shadows off the water!
