I returned to the Ruby, a short distance downstream of the damn. It was a sunny morning, with little wind. The tricos began to come off the water around 9:30, collecting in ever increasing clouds for an hour, before falling spent to the water’s surface. With that, fish began to surface. But our anticipated moment of dry fly fishing was cut short, by clouds and a northerly wind.
This section of river has many large brown trout, but one must hit the hatches to get them. The tricos are still hatching by mid-morning, if sunny. Worth a visit!
