Delayed Harvest and Large Stocked Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report- December 12, 2017

Posted by Harry Murray on

Mr. Rapidan Midge Dry, Griffiths Gnat and Bead Head Copper John Zebra
The chironomid midge hatches are heavy on Big Stoney Creek and Passage Creek at dusk. A delicate dimple-rise form shows me the trout are feeding on the adults. I fish to these trout with a Mr. Rapidan Midge Dry size 18 or a Griffiths Gnat size 18. When I see  splashy riseforms I know the trout are feeding on the emerging midges and I use a Bead Head Copper John Zebra size 18 with a slow fly-lifting action.
