Hoppers, olive or orange scud imitations, and tricos, along with a few damselfly adults, will provide most of the action this month. Tie on a Parachute Hopper or whatever your favorite pattern is. Cast it near the cattails and grassy banks. Impart some action to your fly. Beetles and ants are also good choices.

Tricos will be active in the morning hours. Carry a Sprout Midge or size 22 black Sparkle Dun for hatches, and a size 20-22 Polywing Spinner or CDC Biot Spinner for spinner falls.

Flashback Callibaetis nymphs (size 16-18) are worth casting, too.

You may find hatches of size 16-20 midges in various colors.

Access is tricky due to weed growth along the banks. Watch for rattlesnakes.
