12 PM-2 PM the Rush river was alive and well this afternoon. The midges and early black stone flies were out in force. The water was boiling with surface action and the snow banks were black with bugs. Any of the small (sizes 18-22) midge emergers, midge adults, or black/gray nymphs worked wonders. Try brassies, serindipities, or copper Johns. Soft hackle p. tails also worked well. Whether dry fly or nymphing, fishing was fabulous. P.S. Don’t miss the March fishing because of weather.
