A warm up period has set in on the river, melting some snow along the banks as we await the coming storm.  The sub zero temperatures of this past month are starting to dissipate now and the typical winter daytime highs of 45-50 degrees are now becoming the norm.  Road conditions going into the river are still a bit sketchy as melting snow which becomes soft and slushy can can bog down a vehicle and leave it stranded.  Best access is still by snowmobile or foot.  The fish are moving once again, and with the coming storms we will see the next push of fresh fish fill the empty spots on the river.  Knowing the best holding areas right now is key to getting into good numbers.  6mm Otter Eggs in Tangerine Opaque, Kiwi Flash, Dead Egg, and Apricot, #14-16 San Juan worm red and Bead San Juan Worm red, #14-16 Level Crystal Leeches, #14-16 Parallel Assassin Dark and Light, and #16 Broken Back Copper Tiger Midge are lighting up the fish!
