Time for BWOs!

Blue Winged Olives (Baetis) are popping on the Stone. We’ve been seeing a few tiny BWOs for the last week or so, but the hatch is getting thicker and the second wave of bigger bugs is starting. The majority are still in the 18-20 range, but some solid 16 bugs are coming out. If the wind isn’t blowing, fish are getting on them. The hatch is starting around 1:00 in the afternoon.

Try a small olive parachute, comparadun or emerger when fishing to risers. Use a size 14 with a size 18 split case BWO as a dropper in between rising pods of fish.

Rock Creek and the Stillwater are fishing well on dry flies, too. There are Baetis around, but a size 16 caddis is the best searching pattern.

I love Fall on the Stone!

Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the Fall colors along the way. It’s spectacular out there right now!
