Stocked Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report - March 7, 2019

One of the finest trout anglers I know uses a three-fly nymph rig for all of his nymph fishing both on the East coast and in the Rockies. The three flies I mentioned last week are ideal for this because they cover the Caddis Larva, Stonefly Nymphs and Mayfly Nymphs. These are the Murray's Caddis Larva size 14, Murray's Dark Stonefly Nymph size 12, and Murray's Adams Mayfly Nymph size 12.

In order to prevent a three-nymph rig from twisting the leader and causing knots in the leader I use a low side-arm pick up on my back cast. As this becomes tight on my back cast I bring the fly rod up straight and make the presentation cast over hand. This elliptical casting motion is easy to perform, gives accurate nymph presentation, and eliminates fouled leaders.

Stream Conditions:  All of the local stocked trout streams and delayed harvest areas are in great shape. This includes Big Stoney Creek in Edinburg, Passage Creek in Fort Valley and Mill Creek in Mount Jackson.
