fished said centre co. stream from friday till moday and there were in fact suphurs...that being said,the #of them coming off were sporadic at best,however,the sulphur nymphs were extremely active,especialy on friday and sunday evening.we were staying right on the creek at the "line camp"and we spent some time "seining"bugs in front of the camp.the small net came up FILLED with dark swimming sulphur nymphs almost every dip on friday afternoon...MANY FISH caught on different sulphur patterns.amazing few days.also watched a large crow take an immature bobcat "to school"for @10 minutes on saturday evening;the crow would hop down a large downed tree to the end till the little bobcat would lunge at him at which point he would fly up to the top of the log and start the "game"over again...fun to watch.

So from what I've gathered from this thread is that we might have a couple days before the word is out and the masses show up. Think I'll hit my fav river thurs-friday.

With last year's hatch being so early, that means eggs were laid early, nymphs hatched early, started growing early, etc.


That's my theory too. Last year's hatches were so early that this year's bugs got an early start on life, so are maturing early this year, even though it's been a cool spring.

The myth of the hatch chart. Hatches have always been all over the place and global warming and the weird drought/flood year cycles haven't been helping much IMHO. Need to get out and fish and see what's happening.

Looks like I need to start tying sulphurs.

QG's, Hendricksons, grannoms all hatched early last year......right on time this season. Unusually cold spring temps delayed hatching.

When you see hendricksons...fish hendricksons.......when you see sulphers...fish sulphers, etc.

I just don't buy into this theory. We've had abnormally warm springs for decades and decades, off and on. It happens. Hatches appear early, on schedule or late, dependant on the weather. And it never changed the overall picture. The hendricksons and blue quills were right on schedule in the Kettle Creek area this year. And the caddis are right on schedule on the Tully this year.
