Rush River 5.14.17

I hit the Rush for a bit after Mother’s Day dinner from about 6:30 to 9:00. With the low, clear water the fishing was difficult when the sun was still high in the air, but as soon as it hit the horizon it was game on. Fish were readily eating black zebra midges, but were also surfacing a bit to the midges, BWOs, and caddis that were in the air. I caught around 15-20 fish on the outing, with about 80% taking the zebra midge over the Euro pheasant tail. We’ll see how much the rains this week muddy up the streams; we could definitely use some!

This brown was caught on a zebra midge, but a BWO wanted to join in on the fun.
