I returned to Mossy Creek today. We are having very warm temperatures, into the mid 50’s, and rainfall has been good, maintaining excellent water levels.

I arrived shortly after 3 pm, trying to catch the evening midge hatch, and found the water level to be good, but off-color, never a good sign on Mossy.

The midges were abundant, with the peak hatch about 3:30 to 4:30 (I’ve posted some pictures in the photo gallery), but there were no trout noses pushing through the water surface. Nor did they respond to subsurface offerings. Bad day- and won’t improve until the water clears.
