Jun 09 St. Peter's Fly Shop

June is here! And with the warmer weather comes a change in the fishing! The flows on the Big Thompson has been fairly steady over the last few weeks. Just today we saw a major bump in flows. Higher flows and warmer weather are causing insects and fish to become more active. Fish are holding in the seams and pocket water that they usually would throughout the hotter months but when flows take a climb then you will want to target the banks and any overhanging cover. Fishing with a large terrestrial pattern like a Chubby Chernobyl #14-10, Hippie Stomper #12, PMX 10-14, with some caddis droppers underneath such as Tickets, Tak's Go to's, and the Kryptonite Caddis, has been producing fish throughout the day. Be ready for when the fish start to look up throughout the day, and be ready for the big dry fly eats on the top! With the fish being in their normal spots, fish the pockets and seams with the dry dropper, and then finish by swinging some bigger streamers such as Thin Mints #6-8, Wooly Buggers #8, and Sparkle minnows #8, to try and search out the more aggressive fish sitting in those runs and pockets.
