While temperatures were warm the past two days, windy conditions made fishing tough at times. The midge hatch was stronger than the blue wing’s and fish were only up feeding along bluffs protected by the wind.
Fish have been feeding on a smorgasbord of food sub surface. Stomach samples over the past few days have shown cream, black, root beer, red midge larva and pupa, sowbugs and bwo nymphs. The wade fishing has been far more productive than the boat fishing lately. Once you find a productive run, rotate through a variety of fly patterns to catch the most fish.
Expect the bwo dry fly fishing to be stellar on the next calm and cloudy day.
Best Fly Patterns
Nymphs: Firebead sowbugs, killerbugs, jr’s flashback, juju baetis, red midge, black zebra, root beer midge
Dry Flies: Twilight midge, cdc sparkle dun, transitional midge, cripple thor, parachute adams
