Better Hatches of Mayflies in The Afternoon

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

Crooked River was also good this week, with better hatches of mayflies in the afternoon and early evening and caddis after the sun hides behind the canyon walls. Even in the full sun, a PMD emerger (dry) with a PMD Nymph as a dropper was incredible for some of our guides this week.
It is so fun, even on a hot afternoon to see the shadows come across the water from tall Ponderosas or junipers and watch the fish nose into those little dark areas to feed on hatches that appear to be spurred on by the shadows themselves. Perdigons, Jigs, Micro Mayflies, 2 Bit Hookers, Skinny Nelson, Soft Hackles, X Caddis, BWO, PMD, X Caddis, Iris Caddis, Adams, Renegades and Hoppers are good.
