Spring is on the way!

Try and not let the next few days get you down, the weather report is calling for “freezing drizzle” and I’m not sure exactly what that is, but it sure sounds terrible. But Spring is definitely around the corner, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the ice is finally coming off our local streams and ponds! Today my roommate Willie and I took advantage of the sunshine and hit Boulder Creek for awhile. The creek has a fairly decent flow right now, about 15 cfs. The fish are pooled up this time of year, so concentrate your efforts in the deepest and slowest pools you can find. Also, with the lower water approaching the pools in a stealth position is a must. Stay low and never completely skyline yourself! We fished fairly hard to stick a few nice brown trout, our best luck was using a double nymph rig, with a size 12 rubber leg stonefly nymph down to a san juan worm.
