May!!!

The weather has warmed to the point where we are starting to seek shade around noon…..The bugs are coming along nicely. March Browns are starting to show. The Baetis like clouds and dusk mostly. The Green Drakes are showing in the seine, they aren’t popping yet…..but soon. Looks like the Ants are done for the season. The flows have peaked and will slowly come down over the next 2 weeks. It’s clear/green and looks like Steelhead water.. The fish are feisty with this chilly water. 54 deg. A few fishers out and about, but seems like our shoulder season is upon us. Get after it now as the flows will not last all summer……

I’ve ran into several fishers that were not hooking up. They normally do well, and couldn’t figure out where their mojo went. When the flows double in size,,,,you often need to double your weight. Fish a longer leader too…..
