This is some of our favorite fishing of the year. If you like big fish eating tiny dry flies in rhythm, it will be your favorite too.
One reason we love trico fishing is because it isn’t easy. The big fish are picky and can get snobby. It’s a small fly and tippet game. Getting them to eat is sometimes the easy part. Fighting a fired up fish in 6x will test the ability of any angler.
The lower rivers can have some fantastic trico fishing. The bugs will die mid-morning and the fish will gorge themselves for hours while the bugs are blanketing the water.
Get out and give the Tricos a go. It’s tough fishing but it’s fun to see a pod of trout make a wake eating mayflies.
