Flavs are emerging from all major Palisades Reservoir-South Fork tribs. This event is an afternoon happening because waters must warm to around the mid fifties in degrees F. for the bulk of the insects to emerge. Big Elk Creek will soon be crowded because kokanee (redfish!) are already in its lower portions. It’s a fun time of year on all small streams because hoppers and other terrestrial insects are numerous on banks, and trout know they are present. So pay particular attention to presenting around and underneath overhanging vegetation and when breezes move such around!
