This is a great time of year on almost any river in the Western States. It is Hopper time! I had a great time with Dave Bennet this morning on the East Carson. We fished with dries for the whole morning, raising fish continuously. The bigger fish are hunkered down and have to be nymphed to until the evenings, but if you like surface action, the dry fly is the way to go. Hoppers, larger mayfly patterns and small caddis were on the menu. We caught fish on all three and had a great time. The water is nearly clear, so you can see them come from the depths to inspect your fly. Hopefully they eat it and you don’t get the humbling refusal. With the hoppers, Twitch, Twitch. The fish love it when you get jiggy with your hopper! Have Fun!
