they'll eat a small nymph any time if you drift it into their mouth haha! I usually fish for them in the dead of the afternoon when the trout become less active.

When the Tricos peak in a month or so, I like to catch my carp of the season on #24s and 8X. Yes, I lose a lot of flies, but then, I get to stretch my backing.

I've had good luck using a small glo bug for them or a really tiny crayfish. Find a pod in the shallows, get your stuff well ahead of them and don't be afraid to let it get Hung up on the bottom. They'll suck it up as they pass by. When the caddis are thick, you can find them rising to them too

Tricos in the AM, I'm gonna guess caddis and midges the rest of the day

Its the Tully. You know what works!

If you guys don't check already, www.tcoflyfishing.com has stream reports as well as the current USGS chart. I would suggest reading it, especially as the summer gets going. They do a good job (in my opinion) of keeping an eye on the water temps and letting you know when its time to give the fish a break.

I was there yesterday late morning into early afternoon. Water was up and a little off color. Sporadic risers in the flats and on the edges of the faster water. Caddis dries and caddis emergers mixed with midges were successful. I may be there this evening for a few hours til dark.

Heck yeah 350 is fishable. Basically perfect for the Tully. Like the other guys said, you can never go wrong with da caddis. Grey and Tan are prime right now - some bigger one's too - like 14-16s. 18s are mixed in but nothing smaller. Midges are a constant. Monday there were tricos very early and I caught a few on male spinners but they were pretty sparse.

Ned, check out the 'tully midges' thread in the stream locations forum, lots of good infO on the midges in there

MrChunk, i found they only wanted the larger caddis also, my fishing partner that day i was there had a smaller size on at first and didnt get any success until i switched him over to one of the bigger size caddis i had...i love it when they smack those big caddis on top, tons o fun
