Root River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Dead drift nymphs and eggs downstream across the width of the river. If you're fishing streamers make sure they are small smaller in size, fish them low in the water column keeping tension on your line, stripping slowly and feeling for tugs.

Seven-day forecast 

Highs will be in the mid to upper thirties to low forties during the day throughout the week, cooling off at night back down to into mid twenties to low thirties. A mix of overcast and some sun with chances of rain/sleet/snow throughout the week.
