Yesterday, I went to my usual spot. While I was waiting for water temperature to rise, I fished with "dry-dropper" rigging and caught many a whitefish! I pumped stomachs of most of my catches.
Water reached above 50F in the mid afternoon. Yet I didn't see any signs of hatches of BWO or Mother's Day Caddis....... On the way back down-stream to my truck, I swung my original Double Soft-Hackled Caddis......
One heavily "kyped" 'Bow crushed it!
And caddis larvae were found........so fish were definitely looking for caddis too.........!!
Today, River kept changing. I floated with Parks' Fly Shop (www.parksflyshop.com) owner/outfitter Richard and Head-guide Walter. Insect hatches were pretty much none. But streamers were taken very well!! This is one of examples!
Wally caught another one, much BIIIGGER!! (he might update Shop website).
Me? I DID actually caught a Mighty Sucker on its mouth!! (no photos will be released!!)
I'd like to mention BIG THANKS to Simms and other sponsors for holding another great ICE OUT GUIDE EVENT. Apparently I was busy fishing in between programs of three days.......
