    Default Window of Opportunity TR

    Nymph fishing is a noble pursuit but it’s time to see what dries have to offer so I head to a place (not THAT PLACE) where skwalas should be out and about, maybe a March Brown or two, and it won’t cost me more that a quarter tank of gas.

    They’re calling for showers/thunderstorms but what do they know (a lot, as it turns out)



    The rain we’ve been getting the past couple days frosted the tops over here




    Supposed to be decent; may have to bring the kayak over here some time




    This will be legal in 10 days and there are some nice fish up in this stretch






    Spot a dozen of these




    This is where things get interesting




    Water is up and chilly but clear; they may not be looking up right away, but patience is a virtue, yes?

    Not much happening early on but the sun pops in and out between showers/thunderstorms and warms things up a bit. Bugs get active (sorry for the blurry pic but the little bugger wouldn’t hold still for a decent pic)



    The window opens up



    And foam is back on the menu




    It stays relatively busy for about an hour; not tight to the bank but definitely in the softer stuff





    And then it shuts down. March Browns come out but no one seems interested; give it another week and things should pick up. Give it 10 days and the big bugs may be out.




    No elk today but lots of these




    Pretty spread




    Pretty clouds




    Pretty much done





    Regards,
    Scott
