    Default How would you fish these trout?

    Ok here's the scenario, I have trout jumping out of the water during feeding. No duns on the wAter a few stray caddis in the air. Went though my fly boxes and techniques, couldn't get one of these guys to bite. I'm figurin emergers. Tried swinging wets, dry dropper with caddis pupa, attractor patterns but they weren't interested. Looked like there were some tiny midges flying around.
    What would u try in this situation? I was out of patience and ideas. I know we all have been here before. How do u figure out what these fish are keying in on? What ever it was the fish were literally going air born after them

    Sounds to me like trout chasing caddis. I'd try maybe a caddis pupae on a swing and/or with a Leisenring lift. Might also try a dry caddis, but skitter it across the surface of the water a little bit.

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Try varying your presentation. Go to a finer tippet first and see if that improves the results. Try twitching a dry fly which often works in a caddis hatch or egg laying. Sometimes making a cast right to the place were a fish is rising with no drift will work especially if caddis are laying eggs. Still, sometimes you may find that the action has ended before you solve the puzzle.

    No one is making more water. Use what we have wisely.

    Typical answer would be some form of emerging caddis. Small/medium stream/river? Big water?
