Set your rig anywhere from 5-6 ft to a AB weight. Smaller midges, and rock worm patterns, midges and some streamers have been the ticket. Cooler temps are here!! Remember this is Wyoming and we have vary variable weather changes so please keep up to date on conditions. Weather is cold this week, the lower river will freeze and the roads are less then ideal.
