Sunshine, Thingamabobbers, Mega Prince and a March Brown Hatch

The Middle Fork of the Willamette fished very well today. The river is in very good shape despite being slightly off color due to the land slide on Salt Creek. Hot flies were the Mega Prince in sizes #8 and #10, Beldars Triple Bead Stone in Black and Brown sizes #6 and #8, and standard Prince Nymphs in size #10. When the March Brown hatch popped around 2pm best flies were March Brown Sparkle Dun # 14, and Klinkhammer Emerger #14. Nymphing tactics caught the biggest fish. Using a “Thingamabobber Indicator” as the strike indicator and tying two of the previously mentioned nymphs 5 feet below the indicator we were able to fish near the bottom.
