Re: Fishing Midge Nymphs.... Need some help!
I've had quite a lot of success on spring creeks in SE Minnesota with 22-24 black-bodied beadhead midges. In the winter when midges are hatching, you have to practically bounce the things off the trouts' noses. It helps to sight-fish and target specific fish if you can.
I trail them behind a size 12 scud to get them down deep and ticking the bottom.
