Hatches are matched from Westfly's database of "standard" fly patterns.


► Cold weather will cause the slow-water sections to ice up, and fishing can become unpleasant.

► If the weather is relatively mild, and the river doesn't look like a skating rink, try large Woolly Buggers on an intermediate line in the slackwater pools; focus on deeper water near rocks. The brown trout will tend to be near the bottom and will be on the lethargic side. They may respond to a midge hatch.

► Brown trout will spawning this month; be careful not to tread on a redd.

► Don't be put off by the murky quality of the water.
