The browns are just about ready to spawn in the spring creeks, and have already started in DePuy’s.  As always, we ask anglers to be cautious on where they are stepping in order to avoid stepping on any redds (spawning beds), as this will ensure the eggs a better chance of survival.   It will be obvious where these cleared off spots are, where the hens have dug out/cleared the gravel from silt and dirt.  Please do not fish to actively spawning fish, if you see them on their redds, let them do their thing and just enjoy watching them.  There have been a couple kinds of baetis on the water, a larger more typical 18-20 blue winged olive, and a smaller 20-22 baetis with a hint of yellow in their belly.  Calm, cloudy days will be the best for dry fly fishing.  Midge larva, sparsely tied baetis nymphs, and egg patterns have been working if they aren’t eating the dries.  Give us a call to book a trip, there are still some fish to be caught out there!  1-406-222-7130.

The browns are about to get busy...
