Not Much Has Changed




About the photograph; Trico spinners in flight.

Not much has changed over the past couple of weeks. We get about ¾ of a inch of rain, this is not a enough to affect our streams. If you do not know what is going on, hear is the run down.

Trico continue to hatch each morning, and the trout continue to feed. For those of you who do not know what the drill is, as follow.
We have been having our best results fishing size 22 trico tied on with 7 and 8 X tippet. Do not expect to catch more than two or three trout in one spot before putting all the fish down. Other successful fly patterns are Red variant size 16 and of course, do not forget ants and beetles size 16 to 20.
At Spring Brook, the only changes are the flies are getting smaller. Fishing will alternate between midge fishing and scuds. The midges are now very tiny in size, 26 to 32. Occasionally there will be a few blue wing olives hatching. The B.W.Os will be about a size 24. During the evenings you may occasionally find a few spinners. The spinners are from the olive hatches and there will not be many spinners. However, if the fish do get onto this bug, try a size 24 rusty spinner.
