I have seen many instances on the middle West Branch (From Upper Game Lands to Hale Eddy Bridge) where there will be zillions of Trico spinner in the air, and later on the water, and not a single rising fish. Yet from Balls Eddy down to where West Branch enters the main stem you will often find fish rising steadily to the spinners in pods remeniscent of the Missouri river pods of the 1990's. I've never seen Tricos above the Hale eddy bridge.
