Trout


Midge hatches can bring trout to the surface.

► You might try egg flies in peach or apricot--the river's whitefish will be spawning this month and trout will grab drifting roe.

► You might see some blue-winged olive hatches on cloudy days that are not frigid.

► Between Armitage and Hendricks Bridge, trout fishing should hold up until the first hard freeze or first string of heavy rain storms. Then it will become "difficult" until spring season.
