Midges and nymphing will be weak until January, but you might pick up some trout in December on a Prince teamed with a Pheasant Tail or San Juan Worm. Streamers are not a very good choice here. Your nymphs need to be on the bottom because trout are not going to move very far to take a fly.

For more on December tactics and flies, see the Rivers in General forecast
