Over the past week Deckers received its first big snowstorm of the season and we couldn't be happier to see it! This has however cooled things down significantly. Water temperature is in the mid to high 30s. 

Don't worry about starting early in the morning. Let things warm up a little. The best fishing is between 11-4:30

Nymphing is your best bet. Focus on getting your weight dialed in.
