July 13TH Double R Fishing Report
Sunday, July 13, 2014:
There was quite a variety of mayflies hatching on the field section of the Double R Ranch on Saturday morning. The reports I received included Tricos and Blue Winged Olives, depending on where you were fishing and what part of the morning you fished. Both mayflies were small, size 20 to 22. You can’t go wrong with a green bodied dry fly as it would imitate both the BWO and the female Trico which hatch in the morning. Around 11:30 a.m. I was shooting the breeze with a Member and a half dozen Callibaetis duns accumulated on my dark shirt. I thought about getting back in the creek but wimped out.
Meanwhile, The Pond fished extremely well, initially with an early morning hatch of Tricos and later Callibaetis made their appearance.
The lack of wind has certainly contributed to the great fishing opportunities.
We are beginning to experience some interesting evening fishing all over the Ranch. The trout have been rising from behind my trailer all the way down into the Field. Sure, the hatch is sparse, but the fish are taking what could be BWOs or hatching male Tricos, and you will have plenty of solitude.
As the White Miller Caddis hatch wanes, be on the lookout for Damselflies.
