I was guiding Hosmer this week and maybe it’s the full moon, but the morning fishing/bite was off. 2 trips in a row now. But afternoon action picks up with Callibaetis hatches and spinners around lunch time for an hour or more.

I did a throat pump sample on a few fish, and they are eating leeches for sure. Every fish. Also caddis pupa (grey with a hint of yellow #12), small olive chironomids and callibaetis nymphs and emergers.
