Fly fishing hatches in order of importance:
Blue wing olives started showing up. Due to very funky warm and cold conditions, what has usually been the normal progression of smelt runs, has been upset. At 40 degrees in the Rapid, don’t expect tons of action. Lethargic fish, but Brookies are moving. Expect better hatches toward the end of the week, with rising air temps in the 60’s and 70’s.
