June 10th Sun Valley Fishing Report

Update: We saw a few things yesterday that we want to update here in the Sun Valley fishing area. First and most important, a very small, size 18 Hopper came bounding through our fly shop office yesterday afternoon. This is significant, in the fact that our door is a few hundred yards from the Creek.  Once the Hopper hatch starts it progresses quickly. With the dry conditions we can also expect to see Hoppers riverside very soon. We have some incredible Baby Hopper patterns in the shop this year. The Hopper hatch is often overlooked, but with the prevailing wind conditions thus far in May and June, expect the Baby Hopper to be a major food source for Silver Creek trout in the next few weeks!

The other thing we saw in the heavy wind last night was a plethora of Miller Moths being blown into the Creek from streamside bushes. The fish were on them quickly when they hit the water. We have some Spruce Moth and big Caddis imitations that should cover this insect. If you are on the Wood or other freestone stream, think about a big Gray Wulff!
