Typical seasonal spring weather has moved back into the area. Cool, rainy spring days that dry fly anglers dream of. The blue wing hatch continues to be stellar.  They have been emerging a little later in the day, more like around 1 pm. Midges are still hatching each morning and clusters found in the late evening before dark.

A quick seine sample on the upper 3 the other day revealed a myriad of food available to the trout sub surface.  Cream, black and red midges in abundance, bwo nymphs(remember trout key in on the dark split wing case, sow bugs and LARGE scuds.  The bows are now doing there thing on the reeds, please leave them be and try not to walk through the gravel they have cleared.  We have been catching plenty of large rainbows in the main channel and riffles as is.
