It happens every year, the fishing on the Hooch gets very tough. I call it the winter doldrums. Think "small and slow". Essentially, you have to hit them in the nose with a tiny fly. It is a good time to get your high sticking game tuned up.

On warm days, there can be a Little Black Stone hatch that will get them rising, but they are super picky on them. That is usually on slower stretches of water. I think that is the reason a small Prince Nymph is a good Hooch fly.

The tug is the drug!
