Warm Spring Weather signals start to Stillwater Fly Fishing Season

Big FV for releaseWhile some of the regular low elevation lakes around Kamloops came off a bit earlier than normal Mother Nature quickly adjusted he thermostat to make cold days and frequent snow squalls over the past couple of weeks. There has been some great ice off fishing action but early season chironomid hatches are just starting to show up. During the past few days I have been seeing more and more #20 – #22 chironomids coming off and the odd #16 so it is time to get serious. The weather forecast for this coming week shows highs in the mid to high teens and sun!! Not only will this get the chironomids emerging but it will also get the ice off a bunch more mid elevation lakes that seem to just want to stay ice covered. This will spread out the fishing pressure that up to now has been concentrated on a small handful of lakes.
As mid elevation lakes thaw we will have eve more ice off fishing opportunities while lower elevation lakes get serious about chironomids.
