We have gone from Baetis to Hendricksons and Grannoms here very quickly. The wind has been an issue on some days but when it lays down, the fishing has been excellent. quill gordons, olives, hendricksons and grannoms all happening now at various locations.








The boy is on spring break so he and I were able to get out as well which was the highlight so far for me.We had enough grannoms to keep the fish looking up. It was a great day.

Baetis sp. I'd guess B. tricaudatus (BWO)
Ephemerella subvaria male (Red Quill)
Ephemerella subvaria female (Hendrickson)

Wishin' I was fishin', things are near or at flood-stage in W Mich- crap-load of rain yesterday and flash-flood 'advisories' on my favored streams.

GREAT photos of the Hendricksons, this gives me something to shoot for in dubbing blend colors. I'm getting to work with the coffee grinder and bunny-fur!

Kudos for the report, and catch one- or more- for me. It'll be a week-plus for things to settle down here.

Tight lines,

Nice job, Eric, on your part and also your son's! As Rogue says above, we just got blown out with massive rains and there are flood warnings on the Rifle, and the Au Sable is way up too, so our trout stream fishing is still a ways away. Besides our temperatures (going back down to 31 F for a high Sunday), so we haven't seen any Hennies or Red Quills yet, I am totally envious...my first trout-outings (troutings??) will likely be still waters, with Reid Lake open right now (waiting for a warm day with less winds to launch the kayak!) and [REDACTED] Pond opening on the 30th (probably what I will do for opener to avoid the crowds).

Nice photos, your grass looks a lot greener than ours!

The mayfly pictures have me jealous! I've only just started to see some bwos when I fish. I can't wait till the hatches get rolling a little better.

The opposite of you Eric, I'm taking my dad fishing tomorrow! I hope the bwos make an appearance for us....

Wow, I've not seen a single mayfly, except for some little Baetis up on Spring Creek, all season and I've been out six times.

BTW is that the lower end of the Allenberry water on the YB in the photo where your son is playing a trout? It looks like there are very few other anglers.

Great photos. My fish have been mostly interested in olives and midges. Landed my first 18" fish of the season last week on a size 22 or 24 zmidge, and a bunch in the 16" range on an iron lotus. Have had one or two around 16" on olive dries over the past 2-3 weeks, and a number of fish an inch or two smaller. All wild browns. Haven't seen much else in terms of bugs besides a few odd caddis. But I anticipate hennies and various quills in the film very soon just a bit north. It's coming.

Three to five inches of snow on the way tonight...on top of what we already have. Had to postpone Botany Lab until next week due to snow cover on top of my plant collection sites. Rivers are blown out by rain and snow melt, shallow ponds freezing back over...

Glad someone's out having fun!

Tim,

Liked your email to me about the Hennies you sent me..."may have to knit some little sweaters for them"...More snow predicted for this evening...As Jonathon implies above, the calendar says Spring, but someone's not listening...:)

Spence

PS...You want the job of knitting those little sweaters? ;)

Thanks again for the care package!
