Fishing has been fair to good at the collection ditch depending upon the day and the experience of the angler. The water is turbid, so for the most part sight fishing is out.  Small spinners and minnow imitations were producing some fish for spin fishermen, but fly rodders were doing better.  Fly rodders should be using hare’s ears, pheasant tails, prince nymphs, midge patterns, eggs and egg sucking leeches.  The fish are moving, so if you don’t have much luck in one area, pack up and hit another. Harrison Pass was open on Wednesday, but who knows what Thursday’s storm did to the pass.
