Local Trout Waters

Karen and I got out today for a few hours with Doug Pullen. I am starting to keep track of the water temperatures. Once the water warms to around 70F, we do not fly fish those waters. It is too much stress on the trout!

Today the water temperature was 64F. The trout were dining on shrimp, leeches, chironomids, caddis and hydropsyche.

Karen and I used a balanced damsel pattern with a hot spot. It worked well for the time we fly fished. I did get some action on micro leeches. Doug got a few on chironomids.
