IMG_0902IMG_0889The cool weather last week made for some great hopper fishing, along with tricos, PMD’s and gray drakes. Water temps fell on the Stone, some cloud cover helped, and the fish started playing on the big bug. Look for fish sipping spinners in the flats and tail outs in the morning and on cloudy days. They are tough to catch, but there are some big boys slurping tiny mayflies. Later in the afternoon, fish are in the ambush positions, waiting for a big mouthful to float by. Hit every current line and curl with a fat hopper and see who wants to play. We also had some success stripping a small black bugger. Here are some of the fish caught since my last post.

The top flies of the week are:

Peach foam hoppers, bead head hare’s ear, red copper john, prince, black bugger, parachute adams, trico spinners, yellow parachute.
