As warmer temperatures increase look for bug activity to pick up and a changing of the guard to happen in the mayfly family. Look for Sulphurs to start to make their dominance known more blatantly up and down the river. Caddis adults will be gathering on drift boats and the fish will start to focus a great portion of their attention to the surface of the water. Delicate drifts, as always, are a must. A dry dropper can be a lethal combo when working rising fish. Not sure how to fish it? Book one of our guides for a day and we will tune you into the in and outs of fishing on these great tailwaters!
Scott S4 8’6 5wt–Great for casting lighter leaders into wind greater distance.
Fishpond Wasatch Tech Pack–Plenty of room to carry all needed gear and hydration bladder ready.
Umpqua 13′ Spring Creek Leader–For weary fish the extra length and special taper helps prevent flies delicately.
