|Early spring usually consists of two extremes on rivers. It’s either mild weather bringing in bands of rain that see our streams swell. |
Or, biting cold conditions, which make trout lethargic due to dropping temperatures. Obviously, damp weather fronts mean warmer temperatures when fly life is more abundant.
Blessed with such circumstances, we can expect to see flurries of upwing flies, namely Large Dark Olives and March Browns.
