Detailed Description:

Warm weather throughout February has opened up water on the East and the wild trout water near the hatchery is starting to fish. Nymphing will be the most effective way to entice fish this time of year however on warmer, sunny days a midge hatch is quite possible bringing fish to the surface. The best fishing time will be midday when temperatures are warmest.
