Hoppupdate

The banks on most river are loaded with hoppers right now, but the fishing really hasn’t been that great anywhere yet. It’s just a matter of time though. Fish have been smacking indicators, so they are starting to look up and think about eating bigger stuff.

What I like to do during this period when the fish aren’t eating hoppers regularly is to throw the crazy colored pink or purple hoppers with ants behind them. A lot of the time fish will come check out the hopper and chow the ant as a secondary thought, but sometimes they just smack the hopper. This combo has been very productive for me the last few years.
