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 good for smaller (10 to 14 inches) fish using a variety of flies, spinners and lures. 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, black or olive wooly buggers, crystal buggers and mayfly emerger patterns. Green, especially peacock herl, seems to be the predominant color that is working. The south marsh doesn’t open up for boats until June 15. The collection ditch is artificial lures only. The units don’t have fish in them due to low water levels.
