Glad to hear they're biting somewhere! I had a blast just being in the stream both days. I'll check some new spots this week.

So my dad kindly passed down his fly rod to me and I've been hitting the Kayaderosseras Creek near Ballston Spa 2 or 3 times a week for the past couple weeks. I'm spending most of my time exploring and practicing my cast, but I haven't been landing many fish. I'm not exactly sure which flies I should be using, could anybody drop some tips or tricks for fly fishing during the winter months? What flies should I be using? What sort of action? The stream has some ice along its edges with some stretches 100% iced in, but there are still some solid areas with open water.

Any tips are appreciated!

Thanks - Dan

Try a stonefly nymph dead drifted under an indicator. Get the fly close to the bottom and moving the same speed as the current. Probably the most common method of fly fishing in the winter. Fish are very lazy and won't be tempted to move very far so you'll need to but the bug right on its nose.
