February Dry Fly Fishing

Warm temperatures mean great fly fishing on the Shoshone! A nice baetis hatch is complimenting the usual midge activity on my favorite winter river. While the hatch isn’t as heavy as it will be in another couple of weeks, the fish are all over every bug. Watch each subtle current line for rising fish. A size 16 olive parachute is all you need. The activity only lasts about two hours, starting around 1pm. Fish can be taken on midge larvae imitations before the baetis hatch. Size 18 pheasant tails will also work. If you don’t get enough fishing during the hatch, try a little black wooly bugger after the dry action is over.
