Fishing has been off and on the past week on the Double R, both in terms of insect hatches and rising fish. The wind has also been a detracting factor. Some fish have been caught on The Pond on Woolley Buggers and Callibaetis nymphs. This morning there were some fish rising to Blue Winged Olives on the field water and on Callibaetis on The Pond. We definitely need some consistently warm and sunny weather for the fishing to improve, and that is forecasted for the next week.

Members need to check out the evenings on the Double R. Take an after dinner “cigar float.” When I drove the Ranch about 7:30 p.m. this evening I saw a lot of rising targets out in the field water from Beat 4 to Beat 9. It looked like BWOs were on the water, the trout may have been sipping spinners, and the fish also were interested in the growing evening flight of White Miller Caddis. I moved up to The Pond and observed a couple dozen trout rising, again it appeared to be BWOs and White Miller Caddis. No one was out fishing anywhere on the Ranch.
