Backwater Angler's New location
Fishing has been good in the mornings starting at about 9:30 or so. The Tricos have really started hatching, and the heavy spinner fall has been bringing many fish to the surface. Size #22 and #24 spinner patterns have been catching fish in the mornings. Through the afternoon and evenings small caddis have been bringing up fish in the riffles. Ants and beetles fished under overhanging banks and branches have been working throughout the day. Though the water is still low, the fish are eagerly feeding and will take a properly presented fly.
