So here's the gist on the conditions: air temperatures were in the low forties, water was probably right at 32 since we were getting ice in the guides (happens occasionally when the air is well over freezing but the water is exactly 32), midges were hatching. No risers.
BUT... here's my fish for the day:
This was winter fishing at its finest. The surroudings were stunning, the water was so cold it hurt, and the fishing was slow. This is what winter fishing is supposed to be like. And it is also why I love this time of year.
