stoneflies, midges and hungry trout

As many folks know, spring fishing in Jackson can be exceptional, with hungry fish, hatches of various insects and sunshine. For those willing to brave varying temperatures, they can have water to themselves and catch some of the biggest trout of the season.

I snuck out yesterday for a few hours on the water in between a laundry list of tasks. Fishing was good and I caught a bunch of cutthroat trout on various dries, including a big foam Skwala pattern and small black stoneflies and parachute adams. Riffles proved the best, with numerous yellow cutts slashing the surface, feeding on midges.
