    Hey everyone! I'm going to try my luck at the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Creek tomorrow. I know it rained a lot this weekend, but I'm hoping the creek won't be too high.

    Anyhoo, should I bring my 2wt or 3wt rod? Glass or bamboo? Are the caddis still hatching? I heard they have a lot of caddis there.

    Any help would be appreciated! :thumb:

    Just saw this post - I would have suggested a 3wt glass rod to throw nymphs or even small streamers. For some reason I shy away from breaking out the boo when its really cold out (plus I don't have a 3wt bamboo rod anyways). I've never done much 'catching' after Nov in the Snoq Forks (but the few fish I have encountered were larger) - still great to be on the water anytime. How were the flows?

    I was kidding. Flows were in the 15,000-20,000 cfs range when I posted it. Plus, everyone knows caddis don't hatch in December! ;-)

    I would go with a saltwater 10 weight and use the Matney technique. :beer2:
