Caddis Strong! For those who like to fish the evening shift the second to last hour is the Golden Hour. Downwinged flies do well. Find a dark night fly for your pleasure.
Trico spinner fall after 9am. Sometimes a great PMD spinner fall in conjunction with the Trico event.
The dry fly game is difficult. The rising fish can be hard to find some days. Be patient. Make a good first impression. Don’t wait for the 17th cast to make that good impression.
Don’t drag the fly over the head of the fish on the first impression. It’s like having really bad breath.
Hoppers? Yes. Buy them at Headhunters of Craig. The best selection and stock on the river.
