We are getting plenty of rain recently. So far here at home the fly shop, the rain gauge is over 1 1/2 inches so far. Judging by the weather forecast for this coming week there is more rain to come. The upcoming cool wet week, may make the fishing a little inconvenient. However this is actually going to work for our benefit. I call weather like this, blue wing olive whether. Reason for this, is that cool rainy weather seems to trigger hatches of blue wing olives. Along with the olives, sulfurous will also like to hatch in this cool rainy type whether. As long as water flows remain favorable we can have extremely good fishing in this type of weather. As for the water flows, everything is sharply on the rise. The way things are looking, we are going to be fishing large nymphs and streamers for the next couple of days. Even though rain showers are predicted through the entire week, I suspect water flows will moderate within a day or two. As for bug activity I mentioned earlier, we could see hatches starting midafternoon and going until dark. Expect to see full range of bugs, from caddis to mayflies. Mayflies being sulfurous, Gray Fox, March Browns, blue wing olives. If it is not raining and the winds are calm we could see sulfurous spinner returns at dusk. If water flows are high and off-color, consider streamer fishing. This may be an opportunity to catch the biggest trout of the season. High off-color water flows give big Brown trout the security they need to go on the hunt during daylight hours. For streamers try size 8 and size 6 woolly buggers and dark olive or black. Also bunny leech patterns in the same colors can be very effective in these conditions. Note: I am offering a hatch special, this is fishing for local trout streams during the actual hatch time. The outing is generally for four hours, this will take us through an evening hatch and spinner fall. This is a great opportunity to fine-tune dry fly or nymph fishing skills. I have time open for full day trout fishing. Anybody interested in doing some trout fishing. This can be on the local trout streams or even possibly some of the new water that I am exploring at this time. Please feel free to give a call and we can talk about what is going on.
