I know this sounds redundant since February of this year. But it is the truth. Dry fly fishing could not be any better. Ranging in size for 14-18 , the sulphurs last week were numerous. They were all up and down the river. Sulphur nymphs , emergers, dun patterns and then spinners, all caught fish at their designated time. This past Saturday, I heard of near blanket hatches on some parts of the river. Heard tales of size 14 and larger PMD colored sulphurs.
Sulphur nymphs have still been hot as a fire cracker. Some stick with them all thru a hatch and hammer then. And then nuts like me go to a dry as quickly as possible. For me this past week, I fished Wednesday thru Saturday evenings only. Would close the shop and head to the river. Each day was able to catch sulphurs on the water . And then fish large spinner falls . I can still see Saturday evenings spinner fall in my mind. I was where spinners were dropping out of the air and fish were set up every where sipping them. Fantastic pretty well describes the feeling and the sight. Fish literally everywhere eating them. Almost wall to wall trout were set up smacking the dying bugs. It is impossible to get any better than that for me.
All of Matt’s trips were better than good. All caught fish well. And most quality fish.
I have two full AAA Grouse skins with head, wings and tails attched to the full skin. Great soft hackle and nymph leg materials. Each is $23, which is a very good price for AAA skins with all attached. Give us a buzz at 423-878-2822 if interested.
