Salmonflies up to South Junction, with Goldens bringing up the rear in large numbers, filling Redsides to the gullet. Big stone dries are coaxing fish in need of a quick re-fill, but at times you'd swear the fish are already stuffed (they probably are!). Unless a lot of adults are getting down to the water (wind, ovipositing), the nymphs might be the better bet. PMD's are beginning to come off reliably, early in the afternoon, and there's also tons of caddis around, tempting individuals and small pods to squeeze in a few easy extra calories. PED's are and will continue to be around into July (late afternoon). Yellow Sallies are also beginning to show.

Salmonfly adults have moved upstream of Maupin, while Goldens are appearing in solid numbers. Big Golden adults should provide heady, reliable action over the next week or two. Caddis and PED's are well-established events that could divert the trout's focus away from the big bugs when available, with a few PMD's and the promise of Green Drakes also upon us. Have fun!
