Late April/Early May – Flyfishing Report – The Caddis Have Arrived

Reports From The Field - Lisa Bellue

May 8, 2022

As with most Fly shops and fly fishing guides on the White River, we have been loving every minute of the Spring Caddis hatch.  From talking about Caddis, fishing with Caddis dries, fishing Caddis nymph patterns, and anytime we are not on the water thinking of Caddis and the brown trout that these little protein packed morsels are bringing to the boat on a daily basis, with hopes that it will never end and we all know it will!

Both Jeremy and I have been working nonstop during some of the most prolific hatches.  The last two weeks of April started the Caddis craze and it keeps getting stronger with every passing day.

The lower flows have made for some simple rigs that are easy to cast.   When the surges and bumps in water occur, a little split shot added to the set up is getting the job done.  

This last week has brought out some phenomenal dry fly fishing.  For every day we are out on the water more and more Caddis are out.

Below are some of the browns that have been fooled by the Caddis patterns that we have in the shop, stop by and we are always willing to help in any way we can.  Remember to keep those flies clean, it seems like extra work but we can’t stress it enough.

Not a long report this time around.  More of a photo overload, but we wanted to let everyone know we have been out there.
