There are Salmonflies and Goldens just below Shelton’s Bridge. It seems to be just a pocket of bugs but the thick of the hatch is between Windy and Palisades. There are places where the trout are fat and lazy. Remember the last time you watched Monday Night Football? After the burgers and 12 beers? Sitting on the couch with no intention to move? Yes, the river is like that in places. The caddis fishing was pretty good in stretches today. The tan X was a real producer as well as a #14 Royal Trude. We did not have that great of big bug fising today. At one point we pulled over on a very productive bank and chummed a few big bugs down stream. Not one got eaten as far as the eye could see. We had a fair amount of lookers to our flies, but they seem to be window shopping…….should I buy the pumps or the heels???? A trouts desicion making skills can be like shopping with your wife………..sorry ladies. The youngster in the back of my boat today, Chap, stuck with the nymphs and roped them pretty good. I find that when the big bug bite gets tough, the trout will readily take small nymphs. When teaching 14 yr olds, action is good.
