I did get some healthy small stream time today. Boy was it cold! The area I had chosen still had some snow, and there were icicles and crust forming in some spots, including my guides. I was bound to nymphs and light tippets, a strange combo but the holdover and wild trout here are picky, picky! The first pool had a riser but he stopped after a few minutes, as did the thin beatis hatch. I almost immediately caught a nice brown and wrongly assume the luck would continue. The only other fish I caught was a salmon parr in a different stream. The abrupt cold has them shut down.
