Fall is here! Weather has changed and we are looking at cloudy, rain and cooler weather this entire week. Fall hatches are out with BWO’s, Mahoganies, October Caddis, Hecuba’s and still Trico’s. The fishing should be outstanding this week. You’ll need to have your fall mayfly box ready to go with everything from smaller 18 BWO’s to bigger sz 10 Brindle Chute’s. Fish are still coming up for a hopper and will until we get our first hard frost. This is the start of one of our favorite times to be on the river and it lasts through October. Streamer fishing is starting to get good too and the fish are aggressive. Sparkle Minnows, Smoke N Mirrors, EP Streamers, Dungeons, Peanut Envy’s are all great fall flies. Switch colors till you find what they like.
