Trout are ready but not yet on top.

Classic Redside.
We are all "jonesing" for the salmon flies to pop and fish to be ready for them to be falling into the water. As of right now it has it has not happened. But fret not with in the next 10 days it will happen. Being prepared is the best way to be. Not wasting time or energy the morning of trying to put you flies and leaders.... on and on cutting into your fishing time.

Heavy water was the best place to find the good fish.
Now Lets get to the good stuff. Fishing last week was great. The nymph fishing was AWESOME!!!But not on Stone flies. That's right NOT on Stones, not even the nymphs. We fished with small to medium sized nymphs on Czech leader rigs and really put the hurt to the Redsides.

Plenaty of bugs around. Just not Stones.
Seems to be a lot of March Brown nymphs and even a few Green Drake nymphs to be found.  All the flies were from sz 10 to 16. The patterns of choice were;

Crown Jewel Green Drake sz 10

CDC Pheasant Tail sz 12, 14

Montana Blue Price sz 10

Tung Teaser sz 10

Lightning Bud, Red sz 16

Nice big hungry male!
All fish seemed very spunky and were in great shape. Hard fighting and lots of big jumps. I have a feeling the spawn is over and all fish will be ready when it ius dry fly time. I hope every one has been getting in some practise for go time. GO FISHING!!
