Mid Morning Caddis Hatch

October 11, 2009

Provo River

Every time I hit the middle section I always think why I don’t fish it more often.

On Friday morning I went up the middle Provo River with a couple buddies. To address the first statement my only reason that I don’t hit the middle more is that when I do fish I only have a couple hours to feed the need so I hit the lower section to optimize my time. After today I swore that I would sacrifice the drive time to fish middle.

We arrived on the river at 8am and it was nice to feel the cold weather, it kind of gives that excitement knowing the browns are getting active. We fished with nymphs to start landing a few and then I did something I had never done before. I hooked a fish that snapped my line so I reriged my line and the next cast caught the same fish with my flies still in his mouth.

At about 10 I noticed some caddis coming off and for the next 2 hours it was unreal. We fished on top and underneath landing and missed some pigs.

    What kind of nymph rig do you use in the morning?

    That morning i was using a glow bug and a hare’s ear. I did fish with a shammy caddis during the hatch as well. The hare’s ear was the best fly.

    @bighoss – we used a glow bug and hare’s ear recently, right? That was the best spot and I’m excited to go again. Thanks for the tips/tutorial. Here’s the pic:
