Mega Prince and Possie Bugger remain effective

Nymphing on the Middle Fork of the Willamette continues to produce best results. The water has been a bit off color due to the silt coming out of Salt Creek, but has remained at a very fishable level. The Mega Prince Nymph with it’s white biot wings, copper bead, and root beer rubber legs tends to show up well in the Middle Fork. Fish it deep with a Possie Bugger or Copper John off of a “Thingamabobber” strike indicator for best results. Surface activity has been limited, Winter Stones, Blue Winged Olives and very few March Browns have been around. None of them bringing the fish up with much consistency. Just as the McKenzie the Middle Fork will needs to warm a bit for things to really get going.
