Cooler weather(upper 70’s, low 80’s) and has provided us with some relief from the heat. We received a good dose of rain today and overcast conditions that was a catalyst for intensified insect emergences.
The upper river is still dominated by a solid black caddis hatch with good hatches of pseudo’s daily, especially with cloud cover. Trico’s are out on the lower river and pretty big emergences happening each day. The duns are emerging a little later right now at about 8:30 or 9 am, with spinner falls occurring by 11am. Pseudo’s, caddis and flying ants have also been out in the lower river.
The nymph fishing has been great on the upper 13 miles. Still more of the same, sowbug on top with a baetis looking anything on the bottom in the am and a black caddis pupa when the emergence is in progress. The worm is working well in the lower river along with tan caddis pupa and sowbugs.
