Compared to last year, there are very few insects hatching...very few! Little midges mostly, and some nice sporadic caddis hatches. Rises are seldom seen to naturals, but they are rising to imitations. I've been using #14-#18 X-Caddis flies, and doing well with them. While the midge hatches seen to be the only game in town, I'm offering them much larger flies and they
seem to appreciate the meal.
Actually, I toss the X-Caddis flies right into the middle of a cluster of dark midges, and they
take the X-Caddis pretty quickly.
