What a change from last weekend. Today the fish were all about chironomids, ignoring all other flies and presentations that worked last week. It’s been a mild week in the basin and the bugs are starting to move. From 11:30-2 it was bobber central and the bug they wanted was a #10 red body, white bead, silver rib thing that I got in a swap at some point. . . closest thing I had to match what I found in the first fish I pumped once the hatch was underway. Earlier in the day before the midge party picked up, I was getting onsie-twosies on a simi seal leech and type 5 line. Covered lots of promising water but it was pretty quiet. The birds gave the first clue that something was about to change. At the peak of the hatch there were dozens of adult midges cracking out of their shucks within my field of view.
