The Seasons

NOVEMBER – FEBRUARY

Cold mornings, cool and pleasant days giving way to an afternoon chill. This is spawn time, providing great opportunities to sight-cast to large trout using egg patterns and small attractors. There will often be midge fishing, both wet and dry.

MARCH – MAY

Cool nights in March and April, giving way to warmer weather by early- to mid-May. Mix of spawners and feeding fish will test your skills at both sight-casting and nymph fishing traditional riffles and runs. It’s the season of sight-casting tiny midges to trout as they drift in and out of feeding lanes.

JUNE – AUGUST

Warm nights and hot days. The spawn is over, so you’ll be sight-casting to feeding fish with dry flies; nymph fishing runs and riffles. A nymph fished through riffles and runs can be rewarding. Very rewarding. July the cicadas start to sing and depending on the year, we get a massive hatch and the fish will slam big dry flies.

SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER

Cooling weather can be anticipated, but essentially the same techniques as in summer. By mid-October, your guide will be looking for the nests of early spawners.
