Bye-Bye Summer, Hello Size 18 BWO!

The fall blue wing olive hatch is in full swing! With the lower overnight temperatures and shorter days, the bugs are coming off, the trout are super active, and fishing is hot. Fishing will be best from noon til 5. On the surface toss a size 18/20 Compara-Dun, Sparkle Dun, or Bunny Dun. For a nymph dropper, tie on a size 16-22 Flashback Baetis or size 16-18 soft hackles. For an added challenge or the opportunity for bigger fish, try streamer fishing with a size 6 to 10 olive or black Bow River, olive wool-head sculpin's and zonker's, copper and natural.
