Fished in the Quittie nature park from the trail bridge at the upper parking lot up to the next road bridge. Caught 3(all rainbows) on a black conehead wooly bugger. Lost one at my feet on a beadhead pheasant tail. One had beautiful fins, spectacular color, a real golden hue along with numerous black spots all over. Also, caught one about 5 inches with parr marks that fought like crazy! A great day out.

Thought about heading that way today, but went north for some Brookies instead (and didn't do that well). Guys keep turning up these little Bows in the Quittie...I still haven't caught one, but I'm really starting to wonder what those Bows are capable of in there. Thanks for the report.

Question...were you dead drifting the Bugger, stripping, swinging?

First one was just starting to swing toward the back of one of the big pools. Not a lot of current so I was giving it a bit of action but really fishing it slow. All others were caught while deadrifting.

All fish really ate the fly.

The one I lost at my feet on the beadhead was right below the road bridge I assume is at the upper limit of the delayed harvest. I fished it hard with the beadhead pheasant tail but only hooked up when I put some tungstun led on. Never tried it this stuff until today. Liked the flexibility it gave me but it kept sliding down the line to my fly.

One thing I have found in my somewhat limited fishing in the winter is that the fish seem most active in the moderate riffles and runs that are from shallow to medium in depth in sunlit areas.

The fish get cold too. My experience in the winter has pointed me toward. Fishing when the sun is the highest of the day. An the sunlit areas. Although that really dosent work 100% of the time. Winter fishing is funny. I try to stick to spring creeks.

soon time to tie on a sucker spawn, they work there about this time. And tungsten bead walts worms with a hot spot. 3 is good for this time of the year. The bigger ones were probably holdover and the smaller was wild. Good job on that.
