April 26, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

As expected  yesterday fished very well with  Hendricksons and Olives being the go to. We also had some reports of good dry fly action on the Upper East. We are expected to get some rain today which will alter conditions greatly this weekend along with falling air temps. Be prepared to go subsurface after today.


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
