In February, expect fish to be receptive to small olive Scuds (dead drifted), Egg Flies, midge pupae, San Juan Worms, leeches, and size 18-20 Pheasant Tails. Of course, they probably won't be receptive to all those options at the same time or on the same day. Take the whole nine yards, and keep switching until you find what's working.

Scuds are light-sensitive, so expect the best scud fishing to be before 10 a.m. or late in the day.

Size 16-18 black midge pupa patterns drifted near the bottom work well. Blue-winged olives should be a factor near the end of the month. Olive leeches in size 8 are another good choice.

Expect crowding until the east side lakes open up in March. Rocky Ford is a popular spot in winter, and with good reason: there aren't too many other places to cast a fly for trout.
