I went.  I probably shouldn't have, except for the fact I was able to get out of the house.  It never got above freezing, but the sun was shining, so it wasn't too bad.  It was definitely the coldest I've ever fished, though.  No hook ups, as expected, but it was nice to get out.  The water was high and fast, which wasn't super conducive for winter fishing when combined with the cold.  I found a couple of good looking holes and dredged the bottom with no luck.  I did check out a few new streams and forest service roads, so it wasn't a total bust.

I thought these tear drop icicles were cool.

I though this hole might have something for me.

Curtis Creek. Park at the gate and hike up 1/4 mile. You'll have the water to yourself and there should be plenty of wild fish. Find long slow pools and fish them thoroughly from tailout to head riffles and everywhere in between. Make long drifts through the middle and stay near the bottom. Set the hook at anything and everything. Takes will be subtle. If you aren't catching fish, it is likely more that you are getting bites without you ever knowing than it is that the fish aren't biting. If you feel like you are making a good drift through a prime section and aren't getting takes, set the hook at random and you might be surprised.

If all else fails lay out a 50 - 60 foot cast from the back of the pools all the way to the head and strip set all the way back. This typically gets fish interested that otherwise might not be moving around too much. Often you will find they become so voracious that they become frenzied and attack with such vigor they will miss the fly with their mouths and your hook may get stuck in the side of the fish. If that happens you're doing something right so just continue doing it.

Shouldn't you be cracking the whip on those Sumatran seamstresses right now?  Get back to work.
