Hot Creek hatches are coming off starting in the morning and persisting throughout the day. The creek has had a little more weed growth since the last report but the caddis are what an angler can rely on to have a great day at the moment.. The flies of choice continue to be the size #18-20 Partridge and Quill Caddis when the fish are actively taking flies off the surface. The hatch seems to be the strongest around 1-2:00 pm, then sporadic from then on while intensifying moving on into the evening.

Hoppers are still getting a sharp response when presented correctly. A dropper in the same sizes as the mentioned dries can be added off of 6x to entice numbers of fish to hand. Go short on the dropper with the current flows and amount of weeds. Streamers are very difficult to manipulate at the moment but there are certain sections where a deaddrifted or correctly retrieved bugger will bring out a beast.. One try is all you get right now.. Don’t let the wind blow you off the water here, as the bugs seem to stick tight to the water during the hatch and the hoppers get blown in to the feeding lane.. Kinda like us falling into a croc tank…
