Happy New Year!  Rivers are coming back into shape after this most recent Atmospheric River….That term just makes me laugh.

Reasonable numbers of fish around… The typical early run of hatchery fish, and some wild ones showing up  here and there.

A few tips….

Fish the fly at the eye level of the fish or just above.

Although plenty of fish  are caught early in the day, statistically for us the afternoon is better.

Of course, fish where the fish are. If the fish are moving, the heads and tails are a given. If the fish are sitting down, fish the gut of the run.

Utilize the right sink tip and or line to put the fly in the zone.

more tips coming soon:)
