Best Patterns

olive or black buzzer, red or green cruncher, grhe, olive or hares ear cdc, small damsel, pink apps, white/green lures, tequila fab/blob.

Fish are feeding heavily on olive buzzers especially during the morning and late evening.

In good fishing conditions there are many more fish feeding on the surface with washing line and dries catching well along with straight lined buzzers.

Alder fly are present in good numbers. Usually the Elinor trout ignore them. This season the fish are taking them, particularly browns. A hares ear cdc has worked well.

Fish that are being caught deeper have been feeding on immature damsels as well as buzzer pupae.
