April 6th Fishing ReportA 30 percent chance of showers, mainly after 4pm. Cloudy, with a high near 53. Southeast wind 8 to 10 mph.
It's officially springtime on the trout creeks. We're seeing a mix of olives, midges and winter stoneflies hatching with fish rising daily. There have also been reports of caddis hatching!!!
Creeks are clear and a touch low with temperatures in the 40s. With cooler nights, there is still no need to get out on the water at dawn, but fishing all day is now possible.
Nymphing in the morning using scuds, pink squirrels and your assorted thin bodied bugs is still great, then switching to a hippie stomper or training wheel with a dropper mid day has been fishing well. Splashy rises mean caddis, both black and tan have been seen. The main hatch is not quite here, but be ready!
