I spent three days guiding on the Jackson river last weekend.  We had a little bit of everything weather wise.  Friday and Saturday was in and out rain, then Sunday the cold came back with a little snow and high winds.  Friday’s trip started out slow nymphing and nymphing remained slow the rest of the three days.  Water temps are cold,  over the weekend it was 42 degrees and the fish weren’t doing their usual thing.  With the cloudy weather the streamer bite was pretty good.  Brown trout love low light and with the rainy weather and cold front coming it had the predators looking for their next meal.  The largest brown we landed was 18 1/2 inches and we didn’t catch any brown trout under 14 inches on streamers.  Olive and yellow articulated streamers worked best.  We also had a surprise bite from a 24 inch chain pickerel.pickerel photo 3 (42) photo 5 (5)
