Harrison Pass is closed due to snow and anglers should plan on accessing the Refuge through Secret Pass. There was lots of blowing and drifting of snow earlier this week and on Thursday, Secret Pass was closed. It should be open by the weekend. But expect 4WD conditions if you do go. The collection ditch is experiencing some skim ice, but for the most part is open. Access was wide open to the ditch last week, but with the drifting snow, some of it may be walk in only. Egg patterns under an indicator continue to produce some fish. Fly rodders should also try the usual assortment of nymphs under an indicator as well as wooly, seal and crystal buggers. Scuds, midges, and small Blue Winged Olives are all worth a try. Save the BWO’s for the sunny afternoons. Of course the usual small hares ears, PT’s, copper Johns and buggers are all staples here.
