We got Trico

The last few days the trico hatch has picked up. Let the trico games begin, spooky fish, small flies, long leaders, accurate casting, other words normal stuff for fishing the trico hatch. If you are waiting to fish the trico now is the time to go. The way the weather has been, the bugs have not hit the water in tell about 8:00 to 8:30 AM. Cool weather makes or a slow spinner fall, extending the fishing opportunities throughout the morning. For flies; trico spinner size 20, red variants size 16, aunts size 18 and beetles size 16. If you are having trouble getting the fish to take a trico spinner. Consider trying an aunt or a beetle to the same fish. Red variant make a good indicator flies to dropper off a trico spinner from.

Fall is coming upon us fast. The way the weather has been this summer, fist of the salmon run may be lest than 6 weeks away. Fishing to silver Chinook salmon with a swing fly, an opportunity that dos not happen every year. The word from the lake has been interesting to say the least. The wind has been a big issue, keeping the lakes water temperatures stirred up. This makes the fishing tough, almost impossible to locate the fish. When the weather does cooperate and the lake settles down. The Lake fishing has been outstanding. There has been some good report of chook salmon fishing recently. So far the best news is that the fishing pressure is way down this year, this means more fish for us. Other news relates to an extremely high numbers of Atlantic Salmon are being caught this year on the Lake. Most of these fish are between 18 and 22 inches, this makes these fish two years old. We could potentially have an actual fishable run of Atlantic Salmon next summer for the Salmon River. With all this in mind, It is not too early to make arrangements for the fall. This year when we fish the Salmon Rivers, Douglaston salmon run this fall. The DSR access fee of $30 will all be covered with our normal daily guide's fee.

Fishing the trico hatch is notoriously very challenging. The flies are small the water is normally low and clear and the trout are now well educated. To be successful fishing this hatch you need to pull all the tracks. I am offering a hatch special for the trico hatch on our local trout streams. We will start fishing around 6:30 a.m. and finish up late morning early afternoon. Obviously this timing will depend on the activity of the trout and bugs.
