Cooler temps in the area compared to what we had through much of early December, yet still quite a bit above average. Nonetheless, it is cold so bundle up. Nymphing is the name of the game. There is some surface action on chironomids the early and mid-afternoon hours. The best action has been in side channels in riffles and troughs. Flats have some action in mid and late afternoon. We are primarily using lightly weighted nymphs in the side channels due to the slower currents. Chironomid and BWO larva imitations are fishing best.
