It’s June and anglers from around the world are starting to filter into the world famous spring creeks of Armstrong, DePuy, and Nelson. Starting in the next week (June 15th) or so we should start seeing steady hatches of Pale Morning Duns. These great mayflies are a pale yellowish/olive and range in size from 12 to 16. Anglers obsess about PMDs as they are a larger mayfly and trout can’t help but look up to eat the dry fly.
We stopped by DePuy Spring Creek just the other day and turned over a few rocks and saw good numbers of PMD nymphs starting to stage up in the riffles. Based on our observations the nymphing should continue to get better throughout the week and dry fly action should start in the next 10 days.
