Opening Weekend was cold and blowy as usual! Even though it was windy the fishing was still really quite good. There are a ton of fish in the creek! The flows are still at winter levels so the fish are not totally spread out like they will be when we get some run off. The BWO hatch has been really good from about 11 to 2:30. The flies we are doing the best with are all in size 20 and 22 and they are; para bwo, extended body bwo, para adams, sparkle dun, cdc dun and baetis sprout.
As water temps come up, we will start to see more caddis and tricos. We are hoping for a good PMD hatch this summer as well. Stay tuned and we look forward to seeing here at Hot CReek Ranch!
