SPRING IS COMMING...
The Fremont yields some really nice fish in the spring, both the lower and the upper are runninng clear at the most productive locations, the water temperature is on the rise and the stone fly nymphs are on the move,with the rise in temp's the ice has started to go out on millMeadow res' with this the big browns move to the mouth of the fremont in search of these tasty morsels
as well as the other good forage to be had. a bugger in brown or black works really well at this time of year when allowed to sink then puleed away quick from the bottom, the strikes are quick so be on gaurd, we also nymph the inlet
with hares ears and midges and did fair.
the farther up the river you go the more the fish key in on the stone fly nymphs and will travel for them making for an exciting day. typicaly
the fish get smaller the farther you move up away from the res's but there are still some nicer fish in the deeper pools up high that spawned there and have spent the winter there wating for releases from the upper reservoire to free them. they are really agressive and can be alot of fun o catch.
the lower fremont should be picking up again as the temperture climbs, use a bugger or nymph th e lower slow and completly befor moving on to the next hole, the fish are there and they are large. (03/03/09)
