Anglers are definitely now facing winter conditions on the Stone. With real temperatures hitting -6°F this morning it’s pretty hard to get excited to gear up and go fishing. Ice chunks are floating down the river today; yesterday ice was constantly building up in the guides. That being said the fish are still biting. Looks like later in the week we’ll have slightly warmer weather and sunny conditions. Fall Baetis are pretty much over for the most part, and with the brighter days ahead, we’ll be fishing midges if there is any dry fly fishing to be had. Rubber legs have still been working for nymphs, as have standard beadheads size 16-20. If you plan to fish streamers try white, olive, brown, or black. Dress appropriately and plan on wade fishing over float fishing the rest of the season.
