 March 12, 2016

Streamflow - 296 CFS Temperature - 40° F

     Eat your heart out Billy Grant!  It's time to fire up the fishing reports for the season!  Snow packs seem to be much more normal this year, and hopefully we won't have an overly hot May and June to melt it off, which is what happened last year.  We will see what happens, but I'm optimistic about fishing Rock Creek in 2016!

     March has been chilly for the most part, but the fishing has been productive in the afternoons.  Odds are you will see a few small bugs flying, but the fish so far haven't been too keen on rising to them (although one did nose my yellow Thingamabobber the other day). 

     It's definitely a nymphing game at the moment, and as you can see in the pictures below, some decent sized trout are being caught.  Patterns right now include San Juan worms, Purple / Blue attractor nymphs, and March Brown / Hare's Ear nymphs.  As we move towards the end of March and into April, we will begin to see more dry fly activity, but for the moment, I would stick with nymphs until you see a healthy number of March Browns or skwalas flying.

     More soon!
