High stick nymphing and be alert to very subtle takes. Wooley buggers in size 10 can be effective if fished as a nymph. Also, retrieve very slowly, hand twisting is an effective technique.
There are winter caddis on the surface with intermitent rising fish in slow water, especially Church pool.
Cold, snow is predicted for this Saturday, however, the river has cleared itself of ice considerably. Be advised that trails are very icy and slick. Use caution when walking and dress in warm layers. Plenty of fleece, icebreaker underlayering, gloves etc. in store.
