Fished a west side trib a little over a week ago (sorry for the late report, but have just been working to much to type this up) with some success. The air temp was 43 degrees! Forgot my thermometer, so I'm not sure on the water temp. The mild temps were obviously noticed by most other anglers too because there were a total of 8 cars parked between two different landings. Anyway, the water level was actually a bit high and pretty dirty. Visibility was less than 2'. I fished from 9:30am - 11:30am, throwing nymphs and nukes. I landed two small bows on the nymph pattern and one small male (5-6lbs) on the nuke. He was a pretty active little fella and had some of the most beautiful colorings that I've seen in a long time, slightly tainted silver sides with the mild rainbow striping. That was it for the day. Boy, it sure was nice to get out and stretch a line. I don't think spring can get here soon enough!
