The Magnificent Dozen
The following twelve charts are for some of the best rivers in the Western US. Each chart is specific to an individual river.
The exact hatch times will be determined by temperature, weather, and time
of day. However, we have provided a point of reference as follows:
A.M. is defined as approximately Sunrise to Noon
P.M. is defined as approximately Noon to Sunset
Eve. is defined as Evening
SP is defined as Sporadic throughout the day
The fly patterns and colors are representative of the bugs you will encounter.
Having a good selection of patterns will greatly improve your chances. And if
you can’t resist the temptation to stop in at the local fly shop and get a
feel for what is working best that day we’ll never tell.
Good luck and Fish On!
