Colder temps, snow in the forecast and the holidays are upon us…Winter is officially here, but our local rivers continue to produce. The forecast is calling for upwards of two feet of snow over the next couple of days, if you want to experience the epitome of winter time fly fishing, the time is now. The mornings are quite chilly so best to grab some breakfast and get on the water around 10 or 11. Areas around the town of eagle have been producing some really nice fish. The lower sections are warming up the fastest but if you continue working up stream throughout the day, the high sticking or Czech nymphing can be phenomenal, the town of avon is still incredible right now aswell.   Feel free to stop by the shop or give us a call for more detailed information.
