It looks like we have an awesome stretch of weather for the long weekend. We definitely deserve it at this point. Fishing should be great on mid sized and small streams by tomorrow and the big rivers may be decent by the end of the weekend. Water temps should be prime as we have highs forecast in the upper 70's and lows in the 40's and 50's which is perfect. Tactics and hatches are the same as my previous report, but for me the weekend of the 4th is all about the Hex hatch!
I'll be up north this weekend on a trout pond casting huge mayflies to large rainbows and browns. Please give me a call if you would like to get out for an evening to fish this hatch from my drift boat. This is by far the most anticipated hatch of the season for many fishermen, and these huge mayflies really bring all the fish to the surface, including the biggest ones in the pond!
