This morning there were bugs all over the Double R. I fished Beat #7 and right off the bat at 8:00 a.m. there was a rather thick flight of White Miller Caddis and I landed 5 trout swimming a #14 Pheasant Tail soft hackle under the hovering horde. Then I encountered the best Blue Winged Olive hatch of the season and I decided to fish dry but just could not select a productive pattern before a strong wind came up and blew the mayflies off the water. Reports are that the Tricos have begun to hatch in the wade water near the gazebo, as well as in the Nature Conservancy Preserve, so the Tricos undoubtedly will be hatching on the Double R real soon.
