April 30th Fishing ReportShowers and thunderstorms before 1pm, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly after 1pm. High near 61. Breezy, with a southeast wind 18 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 39 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Creeks are clear and still a bit low with temperatures right around 50.
We are still waiting for just a bit of a bump in water temperature and a sunny day to see our caddis hatch. You can still get fish to eat caddis emergers and larvae, but we need just a bit of sun for the full on hatch to appear. The rocks are full of larvae waiting to go!
In the meantime, we are still finding fish happily eating larger size 12-14 parachutes as well as some foam patterns on the surface. Both of these flies we are fishing with bead heads below. From zebra midges to scuds and even micro leeches, subsurface is where the action is right now.
Streamers are also solid as the overcast weather has trout in a bit more aggressive mood.
