The caddis hatch heats up in the afternoons especially when the sun comes out.  Further down stream from Wildcat Shoals down this hatch is heavier but is slowly moving upstream.  I did fish the state park yeasterday after 3:00 PM and did see several caddis with a few takes off the surface.  Reports fro downstream affirm that takes on the surface at this time are better down stream where the hatches are heaviest.  Look for the caddis throughout the month of April with sulphers starting to come on strong as we enter may. Make sure you have some PT’s with you as april comes to an end.  If you need some we are loaded up with them in the shop.  Looking for a 20 inch or bigger fish this spring?  Learn to target, hook, play and land these bigger and better brown trout on low water.  Fishing with Wishes & Fishes guides and Jimmy T. will get you into these fish on low or no flow situations.  Call for more information and to set up this exciting fishing adventure by calling 870-404-8906  Check out last April through August 2012 photo gallery for proof.  Morning of 10 brown trout or more are not uncommon while wading and our best morning last year was 30 brown trout in 5 hours with 2 over 24 inches and 15 over 20 inches.  We do it every year.  Our fly shop has 4 very qualified guides than can do this.
