Looks like the upper river has caught up to the lower river with respect to fishing success. It’s about the time during a normal season that fishing on the lower river begins to slow, even though this year has been anything but normal. Caddis and PMDs (evening spinner falls) are present in good numbers on the lower river, but nymphing is becoming more important as the best way to fish. It’s a bit early for hoppers, but with warming and drier days, ants and beetles are more active and therefore important in a trout’s diet. On the upper river a big variety of mayflies, caddisflies and terrestrials are attracting fish. PMDs and afternoon flavs are the most numerous mayflies with a few evening brown drakes emerging. And as with the lower river beetles and ants are more important.
