The BWO emergence has now showed up in fishable numbers.  Cloudy overcast days have been the best, but even without a cloud in the sky like yesterday we were able to find a few pods.  Midges will continue to get stronger as well and overlap the blue winged olive hatch as we move further into spring.

The water is gin clear out there and the streamer fishing has been getting tougher.  Yesterday, small olive, white and natural streamers worked well.  I fished a hot bead bugger up front with a small brown Home Invader trailed behind.

The nymph fishing has been very good.  Firebead sowbugs, killerbugs, midge larva and blue winged olive nymphs are must have flies for your boxes.

Poor Picture because of glare, but take notice of the three tails, segmented abdomen and dark wingcase on this BWO nymph.
