I need to make sure that no opportunities go unnoticed and give my clients the best shot at success. This method is so effective that I rarely leave home without at least two rods available. Another advantage to this setup is having drys, nymphs, and streamers ready for action. I start with drys to see if I can get a fish to rise, or I target rising fish. I switch to nymphs when the hatch slows down or when the adults have laid their eggs, died, and been swept down below the water’s surface. This is when the next hatch begins to rise, or when the subsurface food supply is the trout’s main target.
One Monday, I witnessed an excited angler ask an employee of the Covey for a specific fly that he had crushed trout on all weekend. The fly was not in stock and the gentleman left empty-handed. Soon after, shop employee and guide Stan Benton leaned over and told me that I should learn to tie so that I would never have to worry about whether a fly was in stock. That summer, to my delight, my birthday present was a fly-tying class with Gary Alameda. While everyone celebrated with a beer after class, I settled for soda.
Tailwaters become the angler’s primary target beginning in winter. Unlike stillwaters and freestone rivers, these waterways remain mostly ice-free, with water temperatures hovering around 42 degrees near the dam on most fisheries. This supplies enough warmth to keep trout actively feeding as midges begin to bloom. I always start as close to the dam as possible, knowing that trout from downriver will migrate upstream and accumulate in the deep runs. In spring the water begins to warm and the stillwaters and freestone rivers start to open.
