Fly Fishing On The Au Sable River, Michigan:
You don't need to wait until you read or hear about the Great Olive Wing Duns, sometimes called Michigan Caddis, hatching to fish the famed Au Sable River. If you do that, you will miss the great trout fly fishing opportunities that the river has to offer months prior to that  hatch. It takes place in June and early July. In case your not familiar, I am referring to mayflies so big that when they emerge from the Great Lakes, they can be seen on weather radar. See the photo below of one in my hand. For lots of information on one of the nation's best trout streams, check out the Perfect Fly webpages and weekly undated fishing report at:

Fly Fishing On The Beaverkill River, New York
It is thought that fly fishing first got its start in the United States, in the Catskill Mountains of New York. One of the famous Catskill's trout streams is the Beaverkill. It is home of the Hendrickson's Pool from where the Hendrickson mayfly got its name, along with many other historical fly fishing sites. It is still cold weather but rest assured that it won't be long before Hendricksons, the female, and the Red Quill, the male, will be emerging with anglers waiting and wishing for a trout to take their dry fly imitation.  For more information on the Beaverkill and up to date fishing reports, check out our Perfect Fly Beaverkill website pages.  www.perfectflystore.com/fly-fishing-beaverkill.html

Fly Fishing The McKenzie River, Oregon:
It won't be long before the waters of the McKenzie has multiple hatches of aquatic insects and redside rainbow trout taking them from the surface of the water. One of its most popular insects is its namesake McKenzie Caddisfly which hatches from riffles like that shown in the picture below. It is one of the state's better trout streams that includes about every type of water found in trout streams. The McKenzie River is an eighty-six mile long tributary of the Willamette River that originates from just above its outflow from Clear Lake on the western slope of the Cascade Mountains. It has a main tributary, the South Fork, which is about thirty miles long.

Fly Fishing the Arkansas River, Colorado:
Looking for an early season Rocky Mountain hatch? The middle to upper Arkansas River in Colorado, has one of the largest caddisfly hatches that takes place anywhere in the nation. It occurs in April and moves upstream to higher elevations from its beginning in the middle section of the river to the headwaters as the water warms up to about 50 degrees. The caddisflies are Little Black Caddis, or a species from the Brachyentridae family, sometimes called short-horned caddis. The hatch can be so prolific that driving up the highway that follows the stream closely will usually require you to make frequent stops to clean your windshield of caddisflies. The trout are mostly browns and they will key in on the emerging pupae at the warmest part of the day during the hatch, and the egg layers from about the time the hatch ends until it is dark. The picture below shows Angie surrounded by white dots that are actually out of focus Little Black Caddisflies coming off the water.

Fly Fishing Henry's Fork of the Snake River, Idaho:
When you have fished all the different, major sections of the Henry's Fork of the Snake River, you can say you have fished about every type of water trout exist in. The river is formed from waters coming from lakes, spring creeks, freestone streams and tailwaters below dams. Its water ranges from heavy, fast flowing pocket water, to smooth flowing, gin clear water. Catching its huge rainbow and brown trout can range from very difficult to easy, depending on when and where you fish. Its aquatic insect population is very diverse and with large quantities of just about every western species of insects that exist. The photo below shows yours truly, James Marsh, all alone except for some huge rainbow trout, fishing the Harrimon State Park section of the river.

Fly Fishing The Madison River, Montana:
The Madison River begins in Yellowstone National Park from the confluence of the Firehole and Gibbon Rivers. It is a freestone stream in the park, but just outside of the park it flows into Hebgen Lake. The tailwater below Hebgen Lake flows only about five miles before entering Quake Lake, a natural lake that was formed by an earthquake that took place on August 17, 1959. Water flows over the top of the earth dam created by the earthquake for another thirty miles into Ennis Lake. The section between Quake Lake and Ennis Lake is the most famous section of the big river.
Most anglers that think about the Madison River, think about the big Salmonfly hatch that takes place each July. Few know that some sections of the Madison can be fished throughout the winter months. The best place to do that is the short, five mile long tailwater section between Hebgen and Quake lakes. Large brown and rainbow trout can be caught there on winter days. The picture below shows yours truly, James Marsh, fishing that section almost a the point the river flows into the upper part of Quake Lake. For much more information on what many consider to be the finest trout stream in the United States, check out the Perfect Fly Madison River website pages and the weekly updated fishing report.
