The last two weeks has been just beautiful for dry flies. Last couple weeks the Mother's day caddis were so thick i had to scrub the dead ones off the windshield after driving home from the river. Yesterday we had a real thick March Brown hatch with good BWO's in the afternoon after the rain came through. Just really cool to see heads coming up to the dry fly. A few Yellow Sallies here and there and we've seen a couple skwalas scattered about still. The Moose hatch was pretty good yesterday we saw a cow and a bull on the other side of the river just munching on willows doing their moosey thing.
My Dad is up on the Missouri for the week and said the Baetis and midges are coming off good and should continue to get better with the cool weather forecasted for the next few days.
The hatches seem to be showing up a bit earlier than last year and it gets me thinking if the hopper fishing will be epic this year come July. It usually gets good on years when you have mild spring weather like we've been experiencing. Really looking forward to throwing the 5 dozen pool toy hoppers i tied up this winter.
