Trico Spinner

While tan caddis, black caddis, PMD’s and pseudos continue to bring fish to the surface each day, the trico has been awesome. The prime time for fishing tricos is from 8 am to 11 am when the spinner fall is occurring. However, if you are willing to get up early, you can hit the trico dun emergence and get trout while they are on the hatching duns. If you had a few too many beers the night before or don’t feel like getting up so early, you’ll most likely be fishing  trico spinners.

We are finally seeing cooler weather move into our area. With the cooler mornings, it may take longer for the spinner fall to occur and the thinner the spinner fall may be.  When conditions are optimal the spinner fall typically lasts until 11:00 am, but it often can last until 1:00 pm like it has several times this year.

Everyone is anticipating some awesome streamer fishing this fall.  As of right now the river is in great shape compared to past Septembers as far as the moss and grass situation goes, so the streamer bite should be good.   With the cooler weather happening right now we are not sure how long the tan and black caddis hatches will last but for now they are still quite strong.
