May flies coming on strong..

Last week we saw a big change in the weather with cooler temps and some much needed rain. This change in weather has triggered the may fly hatches to come on in good numbers.. Large numbers of Trico’s are coming off in the morning and providing some challenging fishing with tiny flies.. The Hecuba ( fall drake ) are showing up and fish are looking for them late morning through afternoon. Some nice fish are coming up for our imitations even if they are not seen rising. Although I have not seen many Mahogany’s, imitations of the fly are working very well. If you cannot find rising fish on the sunny warm afternoons, switch to a hopper which caught us some very big fish this week. The good dry fly fishing should last well into October….See ya on the river……………… ~ ><(((*>

Fall fishing!

It is hard to believe September is here. Where did summer go? The weather however still feels much like August, hot dry days in the 80’s and 90’s. River flows are still in good shape and fishing is holding up. Hoppers are still bringing up some good fish in the afternoons. The may flies of fall are beginning to show in small numbers and should increase once we get some cooler cloudy days. Hecubas (fall drake) and Tricos are catching a few fish in the clouds and shady banks. If you find some risers , match the hatch with the appropriate may fly. If nothing is rising stick with a hopper and if you must drop a nymph about 2 1/2 feet below. This weather pattern is expected to last another week, when it cools down the may fly hatches should be great. See ya on the river…..
