Trout


► The Holy Water below Lost Creek Dam is worth a try for its plump trout. Carry midge, blue-winged olive, and leech patterns.

Steelhead


Traditional tactics with standard winter steelhead swinging flies will work, but in many runs you're better off with indicator tactics and standard steelhead nymphing flies.

► As the water temperature drops into the low 40s, steelhead will not chase down your fly. So if you're nymphing, make sure your fly is truly dead-drifting; even a little drag will kill your chances.

General


► Look for flows at Dodge Bridge that are under 2,000 cfs before you head for the water. If water quality is poor, try fishing above Casey Park. This puts you above Butte Creek, a major source of turbid water after a storm.
