May 26, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The West had a good caddis hatch yesterday afternoon and the fish got on them pretty good later in the day.   There was also a decent spinner fall on the lower west last night.  We’ve also received reports of decent March Browns on the middle to lower Main Stem in the past week.  The forecast for today is calling for a mix of clouds and sun in the morning followed by cloudy skies in the afternoon with winds out of the West at 5-10 mph.



Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #14–24

Blue Quills – #16-18
