Opening weekend can be a tough time for resident trout fishing. And it can remain tough until the water warms enough that insect life becomes extremely active after a long winter. One type of fly that I always make sure to have in my fly box for the beginning of the season is an assortment of micro streamers. I find these tend to bring fish out of hiding when the water is still cold, and brook trout in particular seem to really like them.
