Fishing the Salmon Flies took a major slowdown after the cold rainy weather we had this past weekend. That doesn’t mean that the fishing is poor. In fact the fishing is still really starting to pick up and we keep hearing that this is some of the best Salmon Fly fishing we had in years. The big bugs have hatched through the entire system now. You can fish Salmon flies from Chester dam all the way up to Box Canyon. If I were fishing this week I would be fishing a Salmon fly as my dry and I would put on a golden stone nymph below it. While looking for some Pale Morning Duns and caddis hatches. We should start seeing Goldens hatch soon as well as PMD’s and more Caddis so make sure you have some in your fly box. If your getting refusals on your big Salmon Fly try something different like a Chernobyl and or a Stimulator.
