Caddis will start popping in March and will last through April. It is a time when once again we get into some hot brown trout action. Last year our hatches were running 4 to 6 weeks late and were not very good. This year the winter was much warmer so our hatches should be on time.
Todd from little rock hooked this nice brown trout on a shad pattern on big water (7 units).
Bull Shoals/White River Lake level as of Sunday Feb 28 6:30 AM 658.98 Yahooo! We hit normal pool elevation. Generation is 7200 CFS or a little over two units. The few days have seen daily generation drop from a steady 11,600 to 8500 and now 7200. Beaver is still evacuating water so more than likely we will see some weaker generation until it hits normal pool elevation of 1120.43 As of this writing the level is at 1122.61 And there is no major rains in the forecast. Wadeable water is headed our way.
The Norfork is at it’s normal power pool of 553.75 and is generating one unit of 3220 CFS. I would think we will see wadeable water on this river before we see it on the White.
Get prepared for our upcoming caddis hatch March through April and into May followed by our sulphur hatch end of may through June. Terrestrial action often also starts in May with small ants (bulbous bi-visible) or my own interpretation a small foam ant. We will agin have ant kits with everything you need to tie in one bag at a great price. All the items you need for dry caddis as well as the nymphal version are at the shop. 870-404-890
