I would say the Grannoms are about shot, however with warmer water temps and low water the fish are looking up, also nice to see more of the green caddis in the river, every year there seems to be less of the caramel colored sulfer nymphs and more of the dark nymphs (the larger size 14 fly. Sulphurs 8th or 10th, if you look closely you can see wing pad development on the nymphs and warmer weather in the forecast!
I Notice that sulfur nymphs in Dick’s video have very fine segmentation on their abdomens. Easy to see why a copper john works so well.
The darker nymphs are the earlier Rotundas, size 14 when they emerge.
They have to be emerging soon. Originally I thought this would be a post mothers day start but with low water, warm weather and the nymphal development I have seen this has to begin soon….Anyone spot anything?
Rejoice there are some Green Caddis larve here, Also note that wing pads are not necessarily dark, as we have been taught to look for, that plus there is some”HULA” movement. PLACE YOUR BETS pick the day.
