We're starting to see some change as we inch closer to the month of March. Big spring midges are starting to show up along the South Platte and fish are responding in kind. We saw plenty of surface action despite lower temperatures over the weekend and bigger midges produced plenty of fish in the nymphing game. While small midges are still present, don't be afraid to size up to size 18 with your midges.
As we mentioned last week, stoneflies are going to continue to play an increasing role because Golden Stones are molting and making themselves more available for trout to gobble up. When it comes to attractors, don't forget about eggs, leeches, worms and craneflies. Several of our guides have been having success during their personal days on the water with each respective food item.
