Utah fly fishing guides fished the Middle Provo at three different locations today with their clients. We started early heading south of Legacy Bridge in Midway. Nymphing was slow in the morning, but fish were looking up at caddis dries. The most effective method of the morning was a dry-dropped set up with a tungsten beaded nymph below a size 14 foam caddis.
In the afternoon we drove across the road and fished north of Legacy Bridge. Nymphing was a little more productive, but caddis adults were skittering across the water’s surface all day long. Once again a dry-dropper rig produced good results.
Around 4:30 in the afternoon we decided to fish closer to the dam. We headed to the Bunny Farm and squeezed ourselves onto a good empty piece of river where the caddis hatch erupted around 6:30. Fish were rising to adults all over this hole! We proceeded to catch fish on dry flies until we could no longer see. Fish were munching both size 14 and 16 caddis imitations. It proved to be a productive day with a wonderful finish.
