The fish are now in rhythm with the blue winged olive emergence daily.  Fishing the past two days was somewhat slow in the mornings and really got going once the bugs became active.  In the mornings fish midge larva and pupa patterns below a sowbug. Stomach samples the past few days have been full of cream midges especially. Red and black larva will also get taken.

The nymph fishing has really got going around 10:30 am the past few days once the baetis nymphs start ascending to the surface.  The bwo nymphs are simply crack to these trout and have been gorging on them daily.  Wondernymphs, Juju Baetis, Jr’s Flashback, P Tails and rainbow warriors have all been working well during the emergence.

The fish have been up on the surface by mid day and fish can be found feeding until dark.  A dun up front with an emerger trailed behind has been the ticket up top.  Fish can be found feeding on spinners, single midges and midge clusters in various spots also.
