Now is the time to get out on the Arky, we have low clear water, an abundance of blue winged olives, and a caddis hatch progressing up the river as we speak.. With the forecast of rising temperatures being a positive for the caddis hatch, it is also a negative for our recent low level snow pack. Take every chance you can over the next few weeks to wet a line. We all know high water is coming... We just don't know when?
As everyone sits back patiently awaiting the "blizzard of caddis" to arrive on the Arkansas river, we are instead blessed with the "blizzard of snow". For the few anglers that truly know this river, are right now enjoying a B.W.O hatch of epic proportions. As we are casting to trout that seem to be rising on a rhythm, I feel a little sorry for everyone that is at home waiting on the caddis... But not too sorry.
