The collection ditch has plenty of open water for fishing, but travel is through Secret Pass as Harrison is snowed in.  Anglers report catching fish averaging 12 to 16 inches at the collection ditch using balanced leeches.  Water level in the collection ditch has improved but it has been a bit turbid which is good news for anglers.  However, with the colder weather, it should start clearing up.  Small brightly colored spinners were doing well. Anglers need to use sub-surface flies such as leech patterns, wooly buggers or crystal buggers.  Other flies working include the usual small nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, olive soft hackles, red or blue copper Johns, prince nymphs and egg patterns.
