We were armed with BWO emergers, caddis larvae, and other bed head nymphs, but we were surprised with about 2 hours of dry fly fishing. We fished for about 5 hours and never moved more than 100 yards upstream. At first, the emergers where the ticket, but when fish started rising, we tied on dries and fished a slow and steady hatch. Caddis and BWO's where in the air, and the BWO (baetis) seemed to be the snack of choice.

Dry fly fishing pre-runoff was great. Can't wait to get back. That river is loaded with fish.
