I finally found a little time to catch up with here after a series of guiding.
Pale Morning Dun hatch has been great at Livingston's spring creeks😁😄❗❗❗ Reports below are from end of June. However this year, even during early July days, PMD are still going on. So hopefully it's not too late!
This is definitely the prime time of fly-fishing and anglers' dream & paradise. Thanks to my repeating clients, I've been able to be involved in the circle.
We fished at DePuy's Spring Creek on 6/27, 28, and 29. Keyword of these 3 days was: storm⛆⛈😬We typically expect nice sunny days with some light breezes with near 90F temp by the end of June, after some typical rainy season in May and early June. This unexpected storm changed "our usual", but in an unexpectedly good way.
On 27th, we picked up some actions in the morning but the real hatch didn't start until 12:30pm and lasted very well. Trout responded accordingly.
And this was one of the largest during the trip!!
Then again, after the storm we had another PMD hatch and trout rose with delights!!
29th was somewhat calmer but still mixed with rain, clouds, and sunny.
Armstrong's, we finally had a "normal" day. Air temp reached around 90F and above (it continues till this day) and PMD hatch started from around 10am and lasted till nearly 2pm.
Here's a Father-&-Son Double Hookup😉😉
What a glorious fishing we had🎊
Besides my clients, I have come to know "regulars" who come back to creeks repeatedly this time of year and I enjoy greeting and sharing words with them.
Hope to see you coming back next year😃
