Harrison Pass is open but the road is slick and muddy when it rains at the summit so please slow down. Fishing continues to be good for anglers willing to put the time in and move along the collection ditch until they get into fish. Fishing the collection ditch has been very good for smaller (12 to 15 inches) fish using a variety of flies, spinners and lures. Anglers report days of 10 to 30 fish, often catching tiger trout along with rainbows. As a general rule anglers will catch mostly 10 to 15 inch fish with a few larger ones thrown into the mix. Flies that are working include prince nymphs, frostbite chironomids, egg sucking leeches, small buggers, crystal buggers and mayfly emerger patterns. Other sections of the ditch are also producing nice fish using wooly or crystal buggers in olive or purple, spinners and minnow imitating lures. Green, especially peacock herl, seems to be the predominant color that is working. The collection ditch was stocked with almost 7000 tiger trout the last week April.
