I have seen 6 PMD’s in the last 4 days on the rivers. All the signs are there, and the fish are sporatically active in the afternoon, but the beginning of this hatch is yet to come. The water is clear. A variety of patterns, both sub-surface and top water have worked. Soft Hackel Hares ear in #14-18 caught most fish. I fish this pattern deep dead drift with a swing. I will also fish it just sub surface with a greased leader. Small Copper Johns in 22 also worked well. PMD patterns in 16 also worked. The yellow Craneflies are out and a PMD will immitate this. Keeping the fly twitching or skating on a down stream drift will get some explosive strikes.
