Hienie, our newly settled in neighbor, and Brandon had a great day on the river.IMG_0434 SM IMG_0438 SM IMG_0440 SM

The weather warmed up and the fish were biting all day. The “W” was calm that day.  The flies included: Delektable Mega Prince in #6 and #8, Delektable Hurless Gray Stone in #6 and #8, Pat’s Rubberlegs in Black #8, and they tried some Micro May Flies and some Caddis Emergers. Other boats have scored on similar bugs and tried the Shop Vac and a variety of Midges. This week we heard success stories on the Delektable Hurless Purple Stone and the Delektable Mega Prince in Olive.

This is the time of year when there are Skwalla stones below the surface, Caddis Emergers are there, and some Midges and Baetis are out. McAtee, Storey Ditch, Varney, 8 Mile, and Burnt Tree Hole are clear for boat launching. The Ennis take out is closed. Early season is a great time of year to get out and fish.

Enjoy!
