WHITE RIVER Rainbow trout are biting live worms and XFactor white worms fished near the bottom. They are also biting small fuzzy peach or soft yellow eggs tied to a No. 8 or 10 hook. Most fish are being caught drift fishing due to swift current.

NORFORK TAILWATER The most productive flies have been small midge patterns such as ruby, root beer and zebra midges. Black or red with silver wire and silver bead are best. Soft hackles like the green butt are working well, too. Egg patterns also have been productive. Double-fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small Y2K suspended 18 inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm. Best colors are hot fluorescent pink or cerise. The fishing is better in the morning. Brown trout are biting sowbugs (size 14), Y2Ks (size 12), various colored San Juan worms and mop flies.
