April 13th Fishing Report

Increasing clouds, with a high near 70. Breezy, with a south wind 5 to 10 mph increasing to 12 to 17 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph.
Creeks are clear and still low, with temperatures right around 50 degrees area wide.  The mornings have been just a bit slow lately, no need to get up at dawn to fish if you do not want!  If you let things warm up just a bit, the fish are more willing.  Nymphing early in the day, with thread frenchies and caddis larvae/pupae being the foods of choice.  Mid day we are seeing a mix of olives and some caddis (both black and tan) getting fish to eat.  Remember a splashy, aggressive rise means caddis and a sipping rise usually means mayflies this time of year.
Leeches and streamers are solid, and catching some nicer trout, but you will have much more success when the sun is off the water or clouds are in the sky if you are fishing larger flies.
