With the recent hot weather, the hopper fishing has picked up a little. Small natural looking hoppers, such as the Rainey’s Hopper, are working well. Large bulky hoppers seem to be less effective right now until some good windy days blow a lot more hoppers onto the water.
Work toward the bank but don’t get caught up in being right on the bank. Those fish have seen a few thousand fake hoppers already and aren’t fooled too easily anymore.
The bite is good, but not insane, which means lots of good casts and drifts are needed to coax the big ones up. Takes are usually pretty subtle and slow so don’t get in a hurry trying to rip their lips off.
