March - April Hatch Report

The fish are ravenous in the spring and the pressure on the river at it's lowest. Since the fish are especially hungry and active moving from wintering habitat, we catch most big fish on dry flies and streamers during the spring. Fly fishing the Skwala hatch during the spring can be epic and can only be experienced in early season fishing. Use the nymphs for the same flies listed below if you want to drop bugs subsurface. River flows can be variable, so make sure to check our fishing reports for the current and expected conditions before heading out.

Hatches to expect:

  • Blue wing olives (#14-18)

  • Skwalas (#8-10)

  • Winter stone flies (neuromas) (#10-12)

  • March brown (#12-14)

  • Grey drakes (#12-14)
