Using a throat pump can help tell you a lot about what a trout is dining on! Be careful to properly use a throat pump. Watch the short video below to see how Brian Chan does it! We have been trying to match the chironomids that have been emerging locally. Lately, we have been seeing large chironomids and the trout love to dine on these tasty moursels. Many of the throat samples have been showing a lot of chromies. These are chironomids that have lots of gas within them. We have seen chromies from size 16 to size 8. We have seen lots of different rib colours although ribs have been mainly a mahogany colour and black with some olive sprinkled in here or there!
Now if only the rain would stop!
