  • The Ruby has been fishing good below the dam, further down near Sheridan it’s iced up.
  • Small Pheasant tails Hare’s Ear’s and Princes sizes #16 and 18’s in tandem with an egg or San Juan worm.
  • Fish are eating midges in the softer water in the afternoon fairly regularly here, so the Griffith’s gnat , beadhead Zebra midge dropper
