Good dry fly fishing on the Shoshone today at Cody. Midges were hatching from 1 pm to 2 pm. I was surprised to see the hatch switch to baetis from 2 pm until about 2:45. That’s when the clouds came in, the temperature dropped and it started to snow. Oh yeah, and the wind started blowing. The fish called it a day, and so did I. Size 20 midge emergers worked well until the baetis hatch started. Then a size 20 parachute BWO produced. This guy ate the big size 14 marker parachute I was using in front of the smaller flies! Guess he was wanted to super size it.
