Now when I say warmer water I’m specifically looking to the water temps between 44 degrees and 50 degrees. These water temps should, in the next month, start kicking off BWO hatches along with continued Midge hatches. Working to prepare for this situation I’ve tied two patterns that should help me.
I tied these on a size 20 hook and I’m hoping they will provide me with a dry/emerger fly option for fishing the midge hatches that I’ve seen over the last month or so. Sparse was the key here, I’m excited to fish this pattern.
This CDC BWO Emerger was tied on a size 16 hook, I used antron dubbing for both the body and the head, if you get a chance to pick up an Antron dubbing dispenser I highly recommend it. Hopefully I will be fishing these in the next month or so. Click the name of each fly to find the recipe from the prospective sites I used to model my flies from.
