Salmon Fly time on the Crows Nest River

June 6 th.... CrowsNest River report ... I didn,t get out until 2:oo pm .. and the trout must have had full bellies by then ... the Salmon Fly hatch was full on after all this rain lately.. a little sun was all it took .. I must say I have not seen a Salmon Fly Hatch like that for about a decade ... even the birds must have had full bellies , because , I didn,t even see one bird swoop across the river and hit one mid air in the next 4 hours ..Didn,t see one trout rise , which is not unusual during a Crows Nest river Salmon fly hatch... Fishing a big dry patterns only hooked me two fish . Nymphing took the rest .. no pictures of the big one as the camera battery and charger were last seen plugged into wall of a ocean side cabana in Belize .. the Crow also had smaller stones popping off the water as well as the usual Mayfly and caddis species ..The river it self is running clear and fast and beautiful ... don,t expect to find many safe crossing spots and dont step in those trout redds in the shallows .. Don,t miss this unique oportunity to fish this Salmon Fly hatch in clear water ( not mud ) tight lines Al B..
