Fishing has been good on the Little Red.  With the “early spring” along with lower than average generation, the insect activity has been good.  The bite is good with hatches of midges, mayflies and some caddis. 
The river has cleared after last week’s rain and the storm Tuesday night was more wind than rain so the river is clear.  With milder temperatures forecasted for the weekend, generation will probably be at a minimum. The fish are taking nymphs and midge pupas in the morning.  The fish are rising later in the day and begin taking emergers and dry flies during the insect hatches.  March browns, blue winged olives and caddis are the hatches to watch for according to what section of the river you are fishing.
Good Fishing!!
