Baetis and Big Stuff


Fishing is good!  We have great water conditions from Grey Reef to Glenrock, with flows still hovering around 500cfs.  If your heading to upper Grey Reef, baetis are the featured menu item.  RS2 foam-wings, Barr’s emerged, split case BWO, big bear baetis, real deal point fly are a few of the patterns you need to have in your box.  Make sure to vary your length/weight depending on the type of water you are in.  Also, don’t hesitate to go to the mini-rig when the bugs are popping.  If your looking to get out and throw some larger flies, you might want to head to the lower river.  Water conditions are primo and water temps are in the 50s.  The big fish are fired up!  You are hard pressed to beat a rusty or an articulated goldie but as was the case yesterday black was the color.  So make sure you have some darker color streamers with you.
