Paddleboard hatch is in full swing. Early mornings, late evenings. Fishing has been pretty good for those making the effort to get up there, with Damsels, Callibaetis, small streamers, and various Caddis finding fish. Mornings, Callibaetis spinner fall hatch or fish below an indicator if fish aren’t looking up. Good numbers of Callibaetis and Caddis have been prevalent most afternoons. Retrieving a Damsel nymph, Wooly Bugger, or small streamer can always be a good way to target some of the larger, more aggressive Brookies and cutthroat Hosmer produces.

Suggested Dries: X-Caddis #16-18, Parachute Callibaetis #14-16, Hackle Stacker Callibaetis #14-16, Thorax Callibaetis #14-16, Last Chance Cripple Cali #14-16, Olive Outrigger Caddis #16-18, Goddard’s Caddis #12, CDC Black Flying Ant #16, Peacock Chubby Chernobyl #14-16

Suggested Nymphs: Bird’s Nest Depth Charge #16-18, Red or Black Ice Cream Cone #16, Black Zebra Midge #16-22, Olive or Black Balanced Leech #14, Dainty Damsel #14, Scott’s Damsel #14, Two bit hooker black #16-20, Balanced damsel #14, Mini Balanced leech olive #12-
