Trouts Fly Fishing Forecast | April 17th Edition

Ivan Orsic / Apr 17, 2020

Let's get to the Forecast. One of our favorite hatches of the year is still going strong. SPRING BLUE-WINGED OLIVES. Despite this week's wintery mix, we're still seeing fish respond well to blue-winged olives. With plenty of cloudy or partly cloudy days on the horizon, dry fly fishing looks to remain a great option on tailwaters and freestones alike.

It truly is spring in the Rockies and that means we'll see a ton of fluctuation with weather, temperature and flow (especially when these big wet spring snow storms melt off at low elevation). With that in mind, be prepared with big and small bugs alike. Stoneflies, caddis, worms, eggs, leeches, mayflies, and midges should all be in your box this time of year.
