The next time you’re at Silver Creek in the morning hold your hand up to the sun and you will see the silhouetted clouds of bugs that are swarming the air. Are the fish on these clouds of insects? – Like mayo on a bologna sandwich. Now I’m just hungry and can’t wait to get back down there.
It’s a real buffet for the trout as well. The colder mornings are bringing trico duns early – trico and baetis spinner falls next – callibaetis and some pmd’s following that – right into damsels and a big callibaetis spinner fall in the ponds and slower sections. A lot to think about during a complete day on one of the best spring creeks in the world! I’m going to make a sandwich, but more footage to come.
