June 1st Mother's Day Caddis Hatch

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Thursday, June 02, 2011

Mother’s day Caddis arrives on June 1st.  After the last couple of years of having a  late spring, we should call it the June 1st Caddis Hatch.   I did an evening float from Maiden Rock to Melrose and we did well on caddis dries through the entire canyon.  You had to be in backwater channels and back eddies for the dry fly fishing.  Get over here fast before the next push of water.  We also threw streamers late in the evening and moved several fish on J.J’s and muddy buddies.  The river has moved some trees below the Meriwether Ranch.  The one large cottonwood that has been pointing downstream right above the slough channel is now gone.  The power of water this time of year makes you realize that you need to be on your toes while rowing.
