Mother’s Day Caddis are here (again). We had a spectacular day on the Yellowstone River between Emigrant and Mallards Rest. The fishing was virtually nonexistent before 1 pm, but once the water temperature warmed up to that magic 50 degrees mark the Caddis came off in mass.
In the late afternoon, we lost count of the number of trout we landed but we estimated it at minimum 30. Needless to say, it was spectacular.
Our best technique was a small Convertible with a BH soft hackle as the short dropper.
Today is a much colder day but this should only extend the hatch into next week – so take some days off work and get out there!
