April 25, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

The wind yesterday kept what bugs were hatching off the water.  Anglers that were patient and waited for those windless moments were rewarded with a some targets. Streamer fishing has been productive the past few weeks, but temps have kept the fish on the lethargic side, so keep that in mind when selecting and retrieving your streamer patterns.


Hendricksons – #12-14

Blue Quills (Paraleps) #16-18

BWO #16-20

Chimarra Caddis – Not very important as an Adult, but swinging little black soft hackles in riffs can be productive. #16 -18

Little Black/Brown Stoneflies – #14-18

Midges #20-26
