Hot Creek gate is again shut at the top of the hill above the ranch keeping fisherman numbers reasonably low. Fisherman that arrive there are experiencing a dry fly hatch starting around 11:00 to around 1:00… Some people are experiencing great success while others struggle. Baetis (BWO) patterns are doing the best when placed correctly on the water in the lanes of feeding fish. Thorax BWO’s #18-20, Extended Body BWO #18-22, and the CDC Winged Emerger #18-20 are all patterns that have been fooling trout recently. Nymphing small Baetis Emergers such as; Loop wing BWO emergers #18-20, Thorax BWO emergers #18-20, Small PT’s #20 and various other Baetis emerger patterns in similar sizes will put fish in your net.
