Top 5 Mother’s Day Caddis Patterns
The warm weather is finally coming around this April, and the Caddis will not be far behind. Water temperatures on all of our Bozeman rivers are finally creeping up which should have some of the first caddis popping in no time.
Mother’s Day Caddis Hatch
The Mother’s Day caddis hatch is an incredible fishing experience that everyone should have an opportunity to fish at least once, even better if you get to hit it every year. This smaller dark bodied caddis can emerge in unbelievable numbers leading to caddis crawling all over your body and a trout feeding frenzy. Here are our favorite dry fly patterns to mimic the Mother’s Day hatch.
Top Five Caddis Patterns
1. Olive X2 Caddis 2.Olive Iris Caddis
3. Dark Olive Parachute Caddis 4. Olive X Caddis 5. Olive Hot Wing Caddis
Fish all of these patterns in a size 14-18. Start with a dead drift presentation and swinging the fly at the end of the drift, if this does not produce, give your fly a slight twitch and rest over the risers to get that splashy emerging caddis eat we all know and love. Find these caddis patterns and many more in our Bozeman fly shop and read our fishing reports to know when the caddis first come off.
