Solution: Try a leech, scud, or sow bug—types of food that trout also see in high water. Anglers can see high water and immediately assume their attractor pattern should consist of a worm. While this can be true, these anglers are neglecting other patterns that can be much more effective. Worms are most effective when high flows have just begun and previously dry banks are newly flooded so that worms are escaping into the water. At this point the water is dirty. Always make sure you take the time to try different worm imitations, like micro chenille, wire worms, and a new but very effective supple material, Squirmy San Wormy.
The trout in Thunder Lake, part of Rocky Mountain National Park, did not stand a chance! I keep detailed records every month of the year of what the trout are feeding on. If you’re just getting started, one of the best books I have found to date is Dave Whitlock’s Guide to Aquatic Trout Foods. It was my “Bug Bible” when I first started fly fishing. This book is noteworthy for the detailed drawings on each page that show the insect in motion and the format makes it easy to learn. I carry a core baker’s dozen selection of flies with me on the water.
Remember that in this season trout prefer cold water that is warming, making areas like the edges of reservoirs, the inlets to stillwaters, and the lower sections of freestone rivers ideal areas to fish. As in winter, I start my trips near the release of a tailwater or the headwaters of a freestone stream to target active fish. As the temperatures increase, the lower section of the river will become warmer than the cold headwaters or the release from the dam. You can then present your flies to feeding trout in the lower sections of the river during the day.
