Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: The high winds earlier this week combined with the cold nights have the algae and weeds retreating and the water is starting to clear up. Trout are moving into the shallows looking for food early morning and late evening, then hanging off shore in a bit deeper water during the day hiding from predators. Most shore anglers are having success using PowerBait or worms. Launching boats from trailers is not recommended at all. Only car toppers or boats that can be hand carried to the water are recommended. Fly rodders are having success with buggers, hare’s ears, leech patterns and chironomids fished from float tubes or kick boats. Fish the nymphs under an indicator and the buggers and leech patterns with an intermediate sink line in the shallows early in the morning. If fishing chironomids a slip-strike indicator allowing you to fish the fly right on the bottom with a floating line.
