Still some big-bug fishing going on, particularly upstream of Maupin. This should hang on for the next week or so, and trout will continue to recognize them for several days once they're gone. Meanwhile, trout are being forced to feed more extensively on the many other insects available, so it's time to take closer looks over the angling day's course to stay in touch with what's most available at any given time.

PMD's and PED's are the two big mayfly opportunities. Cloudy days can bring forth a mayfly bonanza, drawing a few BWO's, Mahoganies and Greed Drakes to enter the fray. Assorted Caddis are around with several stages to be prepared for (particularly the pupa, adult/egg-layers), and Yellow Sallies are set to mean business any day now.
