It's time once again to fire up the fishing reports for the year! Eat your heart out, Billy, Chuck and Catfish!
After getting several e-mails asking about the transition to a blog, I decided instead to keep this page up and running so people wouldn't have to update their shortcuts. One change I will be making is I will keep an archive of all the fishing reports frome here on out, and I will add a link to it beneath the River Conditions and Weather Conditions on this page. I will bring it up at the end of either March or April and keep a log of each month's reports.
As most of you know, we were hit very hard by the snow this year, so one thing we will keep an eye on is potential flooding. It remains to be seen if it will throw off the spring fishing, though that doesn't usually deter the guides and floaters in June. The silver lining to high water is that July through September will likely see excellent water conditions, which is good news for wade fishermen. We will keep you up to date on water and weather on Rock Creek as well as any potential hazards (log jams, fires, etc.).
Regarding current fishing, the recent rain has melted a lot of the snow accumulated the past two weeks, but the river has also come up, and there haven't been many people out on the water. Still, if you can find a decent pool (and be careful if you go out to look for one), drag a stonefly nymph or a San Juan worm through it, and you'll undoubtedly get some production. There is not much in dry fly action so far, but March Browns are extremely close, and the fish should be looking up for them at this point.
More next week. Get your gear and tackle boxes ready!
