Like the temperatures our local waters are beginning to transition. PMD’s and Caddis are still causing fish to rise. However, Pseudo’s are also becoming standard fare for our trout!
The Middle Provo is currently at 320cfs. This is a good fishing flow, and we expect it to remain at level for some time. Early morning midges, PMD’s and Pseudo’s are hatching. Dry fly action is a little sporadic, but there are plenty of opportunities for surface eats. Try fishing Phil flies on top. They have been extremely productive! In between hatches try nymphing sz. 24-26 midge pupae and emergers. Fish PMD and Pseudo nymphs and emergers just prior to the hatch.
The Lower Provo flows are holding at 445cfs. Lower stretches (i.e. Wing Dams, Herring Hole) are becoming challenging to fish due to grass. Caddis, PMD’s and Pseudo’s are out and about throughout the day. Try skating Caddis in the early morning and drifting Phil flies in the afternoon for surface takes. For subsurface eats try nymphing Sow Bugs, RS2’s, Wd40’s, and Midge pupae. In addition slow swing a soft hackle Caddis pattern through runs.
There has been and currently is a plethora of anglers enjoying the local waters. Please keep etiquette in your thought process when entering a run with another angler already present. Communication is key to avoiding negative interactions. Saying hello and asking if they mind if you fish there can’t hurt. Refrain from using “busy traffic” as an excuse for poor etiquette.
Get out there and go get some “EATS!”
