A few of our fishing guides have been out hunting ducks on the Snake the past few weeks, and have brought back reports of rising trout in the afternoons.  The best spot has been at the very end of the back eddy where it rejoins the main current. Midges are the main fare on the menu as water temperatures are too cold for BWO’s at this point. The warmest part of the day, 1-3pm is the best time to be there… This past week brought the valley temperatures that we typically associate with late December.  Morning lows were reaching -10 degrees and highs only reaching 10 degrees above zero! Snow is predicted for the next few days and this brings with it warmer temperatures closer to 30 degrees.  Should make for a white Christmas and great skiing!
