Birch Creek is the best option for fishing a small stream right now. Being essentially a spring creek in origin, it is influenced little by run-off after snow around it is gone, such as now. See our web site article on Birch Creek for details. A strategy for fishing it is to present nymph and very small wooly worm patterns during the morning hours, then as the waters warm and insects (caddis, midges, BWOs) emerge during the PM hours switch to dry patterns. Warm River is another small stream not influenced by a large amount of high country run-off. It is open for catch and release fishing until general season begins. Consider the same strategy as we suggest for Birch Creek for fishing it this time of the season.
