5-Day Outlook as of 5/5/21
Look for fish feeding in slow foamy water. A Griffith Gnat followed by a smaller single midge pattern or a BWO emerger will get the job done. If they're heavy on the BWO flies try a single fly for the best presentation.
Techniques & Tips as of 5/5/21
Look for rising fish eating adult or emerging midge and BWO flies. If there is nothing happening there, nymph or streamer fishing can be extremely productive. We are in transition from sub surface season to dry fly season so getting down and dirty with an indicator/euro style rig can still produce your best numbers and some great quality rainbow and brown trout.
