Winter Midges

Fished Depuys yesterday, guided it today. With highs in the mid 20's and bluebird skies, the conditions have been less than ideal. Still, there are plenty of fish to be caught and they are pretty much just eating midges. A little bit of a rise late morning/early afternoon but mostly on the pupae patterns in black or red. The weather is supposed to improve over the weekend which might make for some good conditions on the Gallatin and Lower Madison next week. I much prefer the Madison this time of year, but the srping creeks are about the only game in town when the nights are as cold as they have been. Tons of slush ice just makes it tough to fish the rivers.
