Sample text

Some of the largest trout I have landed were caught during sporadic hatches. In addition to hatches, a break in the weather can allow the trout to feed on the surface, where you can present a hopper or a mouse to trout that have seen nothing but subsurface food all day. Streamers are tricky. I have yet to meet an angler who can hit the water and nail fish on streamers all day. Streamers work only under specific circumstances. For instance, if the water suddenly increases in flow and becomes off-color, trout will feel much more comfortable attacking large prey.

This will help you not only make the fly appear natural, but also make the fly mimic the shrinking cycle many insects undergo in river settings. The best examples of this shrinking cycle are Tricos. When they first bloom in early summer, the insects are at their maximum size, around #18 or #20. The trout watch the size of their meal, and you can get away with larger imitations. As the hatch moves through its cycle from summer into early fall, the insects progressively get smaller, around #22 to #26.

To solve this problem, think beyond the hatching insect and go with one or two imitations that mimic a food supply that does not start from a hatch. I call them the “forgotten flies,” referring to ants and beetles. These food supplies fall, fly, drop, or are blown into the water. They are my go-to cleanup flies that seem to always get a rise from trout that simply will not take a hatch-matching imitation. While ants and beetles come in a variety of colors, I find that black is the best and most versatile selection for all waterways.
