My friend Marty Cecil landed this beautiful rainbow while nymphing on the Blue River. Tailwaters fish well all year round, and if you don't mind breaking the ice from your guides, wading through snowdrifts, and sliding around on bank ice, you can have a pretty good time. While the sun was above the horizon, the fishing was good and we landed a bunch of mostly rainbows and cutbows during the afternoon; when the sun disappeared and the temperature began to drop, everything including the fishing froze solid.
