With its great fish population Hot Creek always has willing trout throughout the day. Even though it is still flowing low and slow,  hatches have been coming out in various spots of the stream, not quite a streamwide phenomenon yet. In some places the hatch seems to kast a good while and yet in others it last 15 minutes to half an hour. Of course, light nymphing is very successful.  Thorax Baetis #18-22, Small PT variations #18-22, T-Midges in darker shades #18-22 and various other slim Baetis and Midge imitations will take these highly selective fish. Dries; Small BWO patterns traditional and modern (thorax dry BWO, cut wing patterns, CDC patterns) in #’s 18-22. Crystal Midges and foam Midge emergers and the like in #’s 18-20 are samples of flies that have been working for us.
