Primetime Just Around The Corner

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Flow Rates and Water Conditions:

The water has been gin clear here, and is in perfect shape for the action packed spring season. Temps have risen a couple of degrees in the last two weeks due to the warming conditions.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

The fly fishing has really started to pick up the last two weeks for large fish from 10-20lbs. Indicating and stripping have been equally putting bends in the rods. Primetime is just around the corner in March and April.

Recommended Flies

Flies of choice on our guide trips have been Chewy Tui's and Balanced Tui Chub patterns. Also taking fish have been the Go To and UPS midges. When stripping, we have been running Bugger/Beetle patterns and have landed some monster fish on Popcorn Beetles.

Guides Hint: The report came from Chris Wharton. I met Chris for the first time last year at Pyramid and he was super helpful in getting my game on. I think you could not do better than getting the same treatment before you try your hand at Pyramid. He even has ladders and custom stands for his clients -Kent . . .
