WELCOME SPRING BUGS!
The Baetis are coming and our annual bug hatches will be in full swing. Some Fish will then become suspended eating emergers along with the big boys on the bottom sucking up eggs, targeting fry, crawfish, leeches, and other large food sources.
Fish have moved up into the gravel on their spawning beds (Redds). Please respect the spawning fish on their beds and observe the signs posted along the river describing the dangers to the fish and their eggs from wading and fishing those specific areas. We encourage sportsmanlike conduct to help preserve our incredible natural resources. Education and awareness of this topic pays off and provides continued fish production and a healthy and strong river system for generations to come.
Boats on a river have the right of way and continue to move down river so be aware when wading to decrease potential wrecks. As always, have fun and be safe!
