Fish till ya drop.
Then suck it up
and fish the evening hatch.
I was on Dry Falls about a week ago. Fishing was slow to nonexistant.
About 15 guys there and only a couple fish caught to noon when I left.
It can turn on at any time now,but the callabaetis and chironomid hatches I expected to see were scant to zero.
Checked out Lenora and only one fisherman there...good indications that the bite hasen't started yet. Spent the afternoon chironomiding on Park and got 5 bows to 16" and 1 20" brown. Hot bite untill the wind picked up and killed it.
I was at Rocky Ford a couple weeks back, fish were selective as usual. Lost 4, landed one, all 6lb or bigger. Olive scuds were the ticket (nothing new there), size 16, but i did catch one on a red wire bodied chironomid pattern i came up with (had a secret ingredient to it...)
It was fun to watch the fish "circle my red chirono like sharks" when they first saw it...guess it was sort of a 'change up'.
make the trip, you'll catch fish, be patient and sneaky...
