Yesterday was the first day of spring and it was a nice day for sure. I met up with Josh in the late morning and we hit a little limestoner. On are arrival there were trout rising to caddis(Yes caddis) and the occasional olive. There were stoneflies around laying eggs also. So we fished dries up through my favorite stretch on this stream and we did quite well with dries. The griffiths gnat in size 14 worked well, the dark star did very well once again and as well as caddis dry flies!. The nicheo did very well also. There are a lot of fish in the riffles as there are many bugs in the riffles now, so dont skip the riffles! I did a bit of brief sampling yesterday and found plenty of gordon nymphs, so be on the look out and be ready to hit a Gordon hatch very soon!

|Hi-vis posts in riffles help you see the fly easier. This wild brown approved of the hi-vis floating nymph.|
