Southwest wind around 5 mph. - Today is like having a second Indian Summer !! - It's time to begin fishing Egg Patterns as trout are starting to get in the spawning mode.- Start off the morning swinging streamers. - If you don't get any takes on streamers then switch over to egg or nymph patterns and cover the water more closely. - Come on up this weekend to Cornwall Bridge and enjoy a beautiful October day catching Big Rainbows on the Housy !! - At this time of year it's best to get on the river a little later in the morning. - This gives the sun a chance to warm up the river a couple degrees. - The fish become more active and the warmer water will bring on the BWO hatch. - We are seeing some October Caddis and flying ants. - - HOUSY Trout are putting on the fall feed bag !! - With these higher river flows the Daytime Soft Hackle and Streamer Bite is still going strong.
Trout are feeding all thru the TMA. - BWO's showing mid-morning thru the afternoon. - BWO CDC Emergers are the ticket for picky risers in the Park. - An effective day time technique is to swing soft hackles to sipping rises. - This is a perfect way to imitate swimming crippled BWO nymphs. - October Caddis in the late afternoon. - Also try nymphing deep during the day with a two fly rig.- On your two fly nymph rig start with a BH Prince and add an Egg Pattern as the second fly.- Swing streamers for Trout behind exposed boulders in all the deeper riffles & pools. - Streamer fishing is a great way to cover water and to find fish. - Go back and deep nymph over any river section that produced takes on streamers.
