I fished the Ruby River tailwater this morning, as most folks chased the salmon flies on the Madison. The water is still very turbid, with visibility only 12-18 inches.I hoped to find that the trico hatch had started, but that was not the case. I did encounter light PMD and midge hatches, but not enough to bring fish to the surface.
The few fish I caught snatched my nymph offerings.
I’ll keep you posted r.e. the appearance of the tricos, which provides reliable, daily surface feeding.
