Another breezy day out on the water yesterday, but there were definitely fish rising the in the lee of the wind, chasing stoneflies and caddis. We also had our first small rush of mayflies when the water temp got up into the low 40s – some small baetis (BWO) and Paraleps (Blue Quills). With water temps starting higher today, and warm weather persisting through the week, we should start to see them all get popping very very soon.

Sometimes you’ll see stoneflies drying their wings upright, like a mayfly. It can fool you at a distance! Photo: Bart Larmouth
