The Hoppers Are Coming

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

The hoppers are coming hooray hooray, the hoppers are coming hooray! They are everywhere and its game on when you match the size and style. Water is very clear above the Hot Creek confluence, so sneak up on the little rascals to get them to bite. Look for fish in the riffles and in the deeper water. The undercut banks can be very good target areas at times. Windy days are your friends up here right now, as the wind blows the bugs off the tall grass into the water. Enjoy the show!
