Happy Thanksgiving! Let's give thanks for last year's good snowpack and also for big dumps of November 2019 snow. Ain't nothing wrong with a healthy snowpack going into 2020. With this winter weather, the forecast over the next two weeks looks...you guessed it, wintery. When it comes to winter fishing, it's hard to go wrong with midges and attractors like eggs. Love them or hate them, there's no denying that eggs will be productive for months to come as fish look for high-value meals whenever they're given the opportunity.
With cooler temperatures forecasted, there's no reason to wake up too early and try to fish to cold fish. Let the sun hit the water and those fish will start come out and eat as the clock strikes 11 AM or noon. With midges serving as the most common fare on both tailwaters and freestones alike, pay attention to your drift and depth. Adjust those and the patterns should matter less.
