The water temp is starting to rise a bit, and the fish are heading out to the channels. Quinn, and Rock Creek has been producing fish. Fishing under the indicator with Balanced Leeches and damsel nymphs has been the ticket to ride, colors include black & olive, black leeches, and olive damsels. For dry fly fishing, midges and terrestrials are flying around and can get some trout off the top. Seeing a lot of bug activity as things heat up as we move into the summer season.  Be careful handling, and releasing fish as the water temps rise.
