Ants Are Flying

A dense hatch of Carpenter Ant Queens has hit the streams and lakes on the west side of the Cascade Mountains. The Trout are looking for them. This hatch will continue to happen at low elevations as the air temperatures rise, after the recent cooling trend subsides, then the flights will continue at higher elevations as summer progresses. Finally these hatches/flights will cease during August at the highest elevations. Carpenter And Queen flies will staple patterns for most of the early summer. There are hundreds of different kinds of ants, and each will have its own winged queen flight. It pays to be prepared with a selection of sizes of winged ant fly patterns in your fly box.
