Brown Drake Hatch Has Started!

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/25425253[/vimeo]The Brown Drake hatch has started. It has been coming off at all times of the day. The spinner fall usually happens in the evenings but came off at 9:00 am on Tuesday and lasted for 2 hours. It pays off to check the lower creek often and we should see the hatch for the next couple of days. I would have plenty of spinner patterns which are tied lighter and a little smaller. My favorite is Harrop’s Paraspinner and Hackled Spinner imitations. The fish have already become spooky and you must have multiple different patterns to throw at the … Read More

As the sun sets put on stronger tippets (3x or 4x) on bigger patterns like … Read More

Considering the current water situation, Silver Creek is the only sure bet at the moment. Although hatches have been inconsistent, typically the best dry-fly fishing has been late in the morning, although some afternoons have been good as well.  I have had my best success with PMD Sparkle Duns, Parachutes, and some emergers such as Harrop’s CDC PMD Emerger.  Baetis are also around, but I warn you—they are quite small—#22 at the biggest. Fortunately, however, in the next few weeks we should see a few Green Drakes on the Creek, a nice respite from those micro baetis.  Also, if bugs … Read More
