Yellow Breeches Creek

Techniques 

Streamers are probably a best bet right now. Dark Wooly Buggers, size 6/8, Black Ghost, #6, Muddler/maribou patterns, and so forth are on the menu. Water is again high, cold, and dirty with the rain. Nymph fishing is still a good technique too. Pick out medium speed runs and holes and work them with #12-16 Hare's Ears, PT's, Czech stuff, C.K. Nymphs, and medium stone fly nymphs. Try adding a hot spot to your flies. Get them down deep. With lots of water, trout are not moving too far for anything.

Seven-day forecast 

Hopefully some anglers hit the Breeches over the weekend, 'cause Weather Guy has thrown us another curve. We had a bunch of rain today and the creek looks pretty bad and getting worse. Weather is supposed to turn cold for a few days. This junk should not last long and I think by Thursday things will be back to moving in the right direction. The creek will not go down to the "low and clear" situation any time soon though. Bring weights! All that said, if things warm up bugs will show (late Hendricksons and Grannoms, tan cddis, etc.) and when there's bugs, trout feed. Look for fishing pressure to be heavy.
