      Delaney Buttes has been fishing well.  We have been seeing fish feeding in 1-2 hour windows with some slower periods in between, so don’t give up if you are not catching right away.  Both static nymphing and stripping streamers have been productive techniques. 

      Black, olive, and wine colored leeches have been successful patterns (especially the "Balanced Leech"). Olive or black/wine themed damsels, black chironomids, and natural pheasant tails (size 16-18) have also been catching fish beneath an indicator.  We have been suspending our nymphs anywhere between 4' - 8' depending on the lake structure/fish behavior that we are seeing.  Water boatman,  scuds,  and eggs are always good patterns to have in the box when fishing Delaney as well.
