Nymphing Stil the Best Approach Out West

By January 29, 2013

Follow me on:

While this is fly tying season for anglers in cold-weather regions, some Western fisheries are starting to warm up a bit.

According to the Modesto Bee, California's Merced, Toulumne and Stanislaus rivers opened to fishing on Jan. 1. No sea-run fish have been spotted yet, but plenty of wild trout are being reeled in.

In Central California, like with many western states this time of year, there's little surface activity even during a strong mayfly hatch. So anglers are still sticking with high-sticking and nymphing riffles with small beadheads.
