Midge and BWO will get it done on top. Overcast seems to be the key. Or early morning, late evening sun off the water periods also. Cripples and Midge Clusters. Adams on the way soon. Put a caddis ro two in your hand as the Mo Days Caddis is near.
Nymphers like the BWO as the primary fish catcher. Firebeads, sows and scuds and worms are still in the mix. PMD nymphs in the water column as well. Get your Frenchie Fly fix at HH of Craig. Lots of versions for your nymphing delight. New nymphing line this year? Well, you should. The fly line is the most important part of the rod, reel, line equation. Don’t believe me? Well, then you must not like performance, comfort, and cleanliness. You must not like clean socks, new tires, good clean oil for your car, clean dishes, clean sheets, a clean car…
Strippers are on the white.
Swingers are becoming fewer as the dry fly bite is near. But, swinging the fly is good. Pre-weed infestation here is a good time to get the Scandi line out and enjoy the cast, the upper water column swing, and the soft hackle bite. HH is your Trout Spey HQ in all of the NW!
Lots of lodging options here in Craig at www.craiglodging.com
The big two months are nearing us. Not much room left in either the guiding or lodging calendar as we move into June and July. Looking forward to a great dry fly bite. Praying to the fishing gods nightly!
