Post Clinch Report: Nov. 20, 2011

Clinch Report from last Thursday.
Air Temp: 60 Deg.
Water Temp: 58 Deg.
Water Quality: 30% stained (light green)
-Early [very slow and limited]
-Evening [Very heavy adult midges]

The trout are active; but, their feeding habits seem to be a little slower than normal. I found that I had to adjust my presentation rate down to slight twitches with anything other than midges. Also; big-heavy midges on longer drops will help you get down to the fish holding in the feeding lies.
The fishing has been pretty good. Most of the fish I have been catching are fairly average in size and I have not hooked anything above 13-15" in a couple of weeks. However; I think you could do well with some streamers or larger flies.

Be care wading; most of the substrate rock has been covered with a new layer of mud and it will take a few dry out days/generation cycles to clear them up.
