Fishing in Cheeseman Canyon is a blast in the winter and early spring! Think long leaders, light tippet, and small flies for your best chance at success, as the flows are extremely low (60 cfs, and they've been that way for months now) and the fish have become pretty shy of people. Midges will be by far the most prevalent hatch. Fishing an annelid or small attractor trailed with two Midges under an indicator would be my first choice rig at the moment. Concentrate on fishing the deeper water in the as fish will definitely be stacked up here. Deckers is fishing well with a similar fly selection. Crowds have been fair to thick, since this warm weather has had everyone racing to dust off the fly rod and tighten into a few fish. On the Dream Stream, reports of lake run fish entering the system have already begun, but so have reports of LOTS of people. Leeches are a fantastic point fly, trailed by Copper Johns, Midges, and of course, the EGG. Get up early and see if you can't tie into a 10 pound monster fresh from the lake!

Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature.
