What to Expect in June
How to use this section.
Hatches divided by half-month. Super Major Minor Slight None
As the weather warms up, weed growth will increase, as will the frequency of rattlesnake encounters. Ticks are still an issue. By noon, weeds will start floating to the top and render fishing nearly impossible.
Still want to go? You'll find damselflies on the move this month. The nymphs will be migrating to shoreside vegetation, and near the end of the month you can pick up some trout on adult damselfly patterns. Present your adult damsel on a dead drift, but with an occasional twitch, just like a struggling natural insect.
You might do well with a size 12 Scud dead drifted about two feet below the surface.
As the weather warms up, expect hatches of pale morning duns to kick-off. Near the end of the month, some tricos may start hatching. Callibaetis mayflies are still active, but they will fade with the onset of hot weather. Hoppers and beetles are good flies to carry in June.
