Aside from a drizzly couple days over the weekend, spring showed up in full force over the last week. Spring stillwater guiding season is underway and the fishing was excellent on Tuesday through Friday, with solid chironomid emergences taking place on a few of the sunny afternoons we experienced.
Lakes in the 3,000-3,500 elevation mark are icing off, with some of the lower elevation lakes already finishing the turnover stage and clearing nicely. The best flies for us last week were UV Tequila blobs fished on Scientific Anglers’ SD S3/S5 full sinking line in the morning, with #18 chromie/brown rib being the chironomids of choice.
Seeing guests have banner days of fishing is sometimes the best return on investment of all, and I’m excited to fish with everyone who is booked in for this spring!! If you have any questions, fill out the form below and I will happily get back to you. Happy fishing!
