Comments: I had the privilege to find rising trout in Ohio in January. I caught 2 on zebra midge as a dropper off a gray klinkhammer, 1 on the klinkhammer dry and 1 on a gray scud dropper. The fish turned on in the sunlight for a time in the afternoon. After I caught 3 fish in first spot, they shut down their feeding. I also hooked a couple others in there. I went further downstream and caught the last one on the scud. Water was freezing in areas where it wasn't moving. All this years stockers from 8 to 11 inches long. I saw 3 other people fishing and talked to 2 of them. One had same story as me and the other was happy to be out of the house.
