The big annual brown drake hatch that hundreds of fly fishers look forward to every June is in full swing but beginning to wind down. Successful fly anglers looking to hook that large rainbow or salmon have learned to fish over deeper water off shore and look for cruising or "porpoising" fish. Anglers fishing closer to shore are more likely to hook rock bass, smallmouth bass or perch but few trout and salmon.While most hatching activity begins around 8:00 in the evening don't overlook the early morning.Trout and salmon can often be found scooping up dead spinners and cripples between daybreak and 7:30 am over deep water. Look for this hatch to end around July 4th and the larger Hexagenia regida hatch to begin. This hatch will be prolific for about 3 wks.
