Freezing Fog..that’s what its like in Helena today, but the Live Web Cam shows some sun hitting the MO’. This weekend temps were just right for some good Winter fishing. The kids and I tried ice fishing for the first time on Spring Meadow Lake, while Ben, our new employee, and Chris floated the MO’. Both adventures proved to be very productive for catching trout. Take a shovel! There is a pile of gravel at the dam that came in handy to help with some traction.

HOT Streamers: Buggers of Black, Olive and Purple color, Kreelex Clouser, Sparkle Minnow, Polar Minnow

HOT Nymphs: Firebeads, Pink Lighting Bug, Pheasant Tails, Scuds, Zebra Midges

HOT Dries: Really no action here yet, but if you gotta throw it try Midge patterns
