Rock Creek is ready for the big show.

Whispers in the shop this morning about awesome amounts of bugs on the lower river. Everything seems to be running early thing year. So it’s not a surprise that the Cheetos hatch is already happening on the lower creek.

The bugs are already in the willows and the fish are eating in the fast water already. That’s a great sign that it’s go time.

The other water won’t be far behind. As they get into shape the bugs will follow.

So grab a fresh spool of 3x and your favorite big orange bug. It’s go time.
