The Trico mayfly hatch has officially arrived on the field water of the Double R Ranch. They were everywhere this morning on the upper beats. But, while the fishing was a blast the catching was pretty tough. Your Stream Keeper landed two fish on Tricos dries and one nicer trout on a Callibaetis emerger. I feel that the key to the density of the Trico hatch from here on out is going to be whether the night temperatures are warm; in my experience, the hatch slows down after a cool night. The hatch has been coming off around 8:00 a.m. I overheard an angler saying that he encountered two hatches of Tricos this morning but, in my view, the first hatch was of the green bodied females and the second period of rising fish were trout taking spinners.

The Pond continues to fish well. Today there were Callibaetis spinners and one Member had success fishing a Rusty Spinner, my all-time favorite fly.
