here is what was hatching about a size 16

You know what that pretty little gem is...

Go small on your indicator if you are using yarn as it can distract the fish this time of year. I prefer stickies right now as Corbo has turned me on to them.

Try these flies on a 2'-3' drop.

  • Black Fly with puff (reliable)
  • BWO Biot Nymph
  • October Caddis Nymph [Works great right now for a sulfur nymph] (Hottest for big trout on the bottom)
  • Quasimodo PHT (Hot)
