Hatches Have Begun

Wow, could the weather be any more unsettled? River flows and clarity have been up and down almost daily. I’m looking for the Stillwater to clear up following this current cold snap. Looks like we might get perfect conditions for the spring triple on both Rock Creek and the Stillwater. BWO’ s in the morning and March Browns in the afternoon. We may just hit the jackpot and see caddis later in the day! Be sure to have some size 16-18 olive parachutes and comparduns for the BWO. I like a parachute hare’s ear or any brown to purple dry fly for the March Browns. Purple Haze works well, too. You’ll need about a size 12-14. A simple elk hair caddis, black body and tan wing, matches the Mother’s Day caddis perfectly. Size 14-16. If the water is off color, strip a black bugger or nymph with a dark girdle bug and a worm. Run-off is coming fast, so go fish!
