The Ruby is a nice option in the winter months. The smaller valley doesn’t produce as strong of winds as the Madison and the dam protects the waters a bit from ice shelves. Nymphing can be pretty good most days and you will often be surprised to find some rising trout over midge hatches.
The Month Ahead:
The Ruby is a good option all winter. The report above will hold out for the next few months.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby will produce all winter. Later winter really gets interesting as strong midge hatches bring trout to the surface. Baetis also show up in April to add to the smorgashborg.
