Over the past few days air temperatures have climbed into the 80’s and with it has come the wind.  While the hatch has been very strong, the spots in which you can fish the hatch have been limited.  Once this front pushes through like for the wind to settle and the dry fly fishing be really good again.

The nymph fishing has not let us down and has been down right stellar.  Midge larva and pupa along with blue wing olive nymphs have been getting it done out there.  A sowbug as your lead fly with a midge or bwo nymph trailed behind is never a bad idea.  Once the bwo emergence starts it is often best to fish a bwo nymph and a midge pupa together.
