Fly fishing remains good, improving on Hat Creek & Fall River

Tom with a big bend and big smile! Leo launches one on his first day casting a fly rod! Tom Peppas, Gabe Duran and George Durand hosted a few groups to some fine days on the Fall River last week.  Cool temps mean midday hatches of Blue Wing Olives and Pale Morning Duns have been fair on some days, good on others with some exceptional dry fly action on the better days.  One of our guests landed all their fish on dries!    Windy days continue to be tough. Hopefully warmer weather in the coming week will steady the hatches and get the dry fly fishing into full swing.

Hatches on Hat Creek are taking off with Big Drakes taking the main stage.  Fishing are keying on midday hatches of PMD’s as well.   Leo, a novice fly fisher and quick study,  enjoyed an outstanding day with Craig, catching a few small Rainbows and losing several larger ones while fishing a dry fly rig.  Some Salmonflies have hatched but blustery weather  has them hanging tight to cover so fish have not started keying on the dries.  The warmer weather in the coming week should have them taking off and get the fish looking up.  You may want to consider planning a trip to this spring creek gem in the next week or two to enjoy the bounty.
