April 10: Mid-day hatches!
As we approach our last week of Eagle Canyon, we're getting some good BWO hatches. Bring BWO nymphs and dries!
We've had 10-15 lb fish netted this week- the big boys don't get pinned very often!
Floating lines continues to be the tool of choice, with 9 foot leaders, sized down to 3-5X. Damsel & mayfly nymphs with a midge trailer will a surefire setup-- if using an indicator, balanced leaches and olive micro mays(size 16-18s) have been working best.
March 31: DVFF at Eagle Canyon
We hosted the Diablo Valley Fly Fishers from the Walnut Creek area today at Eagle Canyon. They had excellent weather and the fish were on the grab. I helped out for about an hour and almost everyone had landed a fish by the time I left. There were a couple 10lb+ fish in the mix, too. I saw fish hooked on wiggle nymphs, tailwater tinys, pheasant tails, and various zebra-midge style patterns.
Barry did well with the olive tailwater tiny
