March 15th Fishing Report

March 16, 2018

With our first real shot of warm weather, the fishing has improved greatly. Yes there are a few Skwalas out and about and a determined angler can certainly get some fish to look up. Things will only improve over the next week or so. For now your best bet is to throw a dry dropper consisting of a good floating skwala pattern followed by a deep dropper nymph such as a Worm, PT or Stone Fly Nymph. Mornings will be almost exclusively underneath.  The late afternoons will be your best opportunity for dry fly fishing. You might see a few other bugs out and about, like Numora (Smaller Stone Fly), BWO's and Midges.  We have a huge selection of bugs in stock along with all the gear you might need for a day on the water. We'll be on the water every day so if you need an up to the minute report don't hesitate to call the shop.
