Flav emergence on Big Elk Creek is in beginning stages and the same should be happening on Palisades Creek. If you fish before early afternoon bead head nymphs work, but presenting grasshopper and ant patterns is more fun. Concentrate on presenting these just in front of undercuts and grassy overhangs. Water temp has to get to mid 50s before flavs begin emerging. This means mid afternoon at least. Best action for fish chasing flavs will begin around 4PM and last for two or three hours. Day with skies clouding up will be best for action. Any pattern resembling an emerger or dun (size 12) will interest the cutts which range up to a size rivaling those in the South Fork below. The country here is tinder dry, so be careful with any flammable items.
