The weather has warmed up well and cabin fever is getting relieved with fishers getting out and hitting the water. The midge hatches are incredible at the moment and the BWO hatch in the afternoon is fun if you can find a spot not so windy. CDC Loop wing emergers, foam RS2, Richard Ramsy’s foam midge all in size 18’s or less are ripping fish off the surface. When the dry action slows down split shot those same flies and fish them on the bottom for bigger and better fish. The Feather-Craft Crackle back has also been working well on the surface. I love this versatile fly as it can be fished on the surface and then stripped in like an emerger or even skated on the surface to draw strikes. The smaller size is the best bet at this time and the color does not seem to matter at this time.
