Effective fly patterns include Green McKenzie Caddis dries and wets, March Browns, Soft Hackles, Pale Morning Dun patterns, Chubby Chernobyl’s in Golden Colors, Prince Nymphs even a strange green comet that my son tied on a saltwater hook.
A huge variety of insects are emerging, the river is in fine shape and warming. It’s the perfect storm for superb trout fishing in May. Swinging basic wet flies is a really effective method at present. Get out there and enjoy, it’s really good!
