Looks like an upstream migration going on there.

When there is an emergence of that magnitude of any aquatic insect it's time to head to shore and have lunch and a couple of high balls and take a nap until the emergence wanes or just row out and go to the nearest bar.

The Mother's Day Hatch appears earlier here in CA, generally in late March on the Lower Owens River in the Eastern Sierras. I have seen it as thick as those Caddis on the Madison in the video link above...

This is a pattern for the emerging Brachycentrus I use. It is a variation of Craig Matthew's Guide Serendipity that he created for the hatch on the Madison:

< />

MOTHER’S DAY MUNCH (Caddis Pupa, Brachycentrus) - Matthews/Variant

HOOK: TMC 226 BL, #14 – #18

THREAD: UTC 70 Denier, Fl. White – Under Abdomen / Tiemco 16/0, Black – Thorax forward

ABDOMEN: Datum Glo-Brite Floss Fl. Chartreuse

RIB: UTC Wire, Gunmetal Blue, x-sm

WING: Marc Petitjean CDC, #5 White – * Two tips tied in opposed

THORAX: UV2 Dyed Peacock Eye, Black

I fish it from the bottom to the top of the water column...and does it work... :)

Nice looking fly there, PT!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
