?'s In And Out

Recommended Posts

Going to Bennett 22nd of April with the family. We usually are not down there until June so looking for tips on flies that will work in April so we can tie up a bunch to use in the park.

Also saw on here where some of you talk about the fishing outside of the park. We're not experts by any means but decent fly fisher's and would welcome any tips or locations to hit outside the park. We have a trailer down there all year so make several trips and get tired of the crowds later in the year.

Thanks for any help.

I’m hoping to get down there that same weekend, well , that Sunday and Monday actually. I started thinking about my “to tie” list the other day.

So far this is what I have on the list by category then order of importance (most are already tied up from previous trips):

Wets:

A wide variety of Zebra Midges*

Small(ish) Woven body stones, like a Montana Stone with a woven body (blk/brn/chart, olive/grn/chart, and brn/tan/yel)*

Copper John Soft Hackles (red, olive, copper)*

Hares ears

Partridge and Olive

Partridge and Yellow (I never leave home without ‘em)

PTN’s

Woven body soft hackle nymphs (variety of colors, mostly olive and something)

(I really like softhackles)

Drys/emergers /indicators:

Paraloop emerger (hares ear and BWO pattern)*

Midge clusters (Griffiths gnat, renegade*, and the like)

EHC’s (black and tan)

Foam caddis (black and tan)

Foam ants/beetles

BWO’s

Foam Little Yellow Sally

Traditional Bennett Spring Files:

THE Crackleback

JD’s

Marabou jigs

White floss

Glo bugs

*=My favorites

Love to hear ya’lls feedback as I don’t get down there in April very often either.

Thanks

Here is a hatch chart that I reference. It is not specific for Bennett, but should provide you good estimates.

I have spent most of my money on fly fishing and beer. The rest I just wasted.

Hopefully Fishin’ Cricket will chime in and give us some “out of the park” advice. I believe I’ve read in some other threads on this board that he fishes outside the park pretty regularly. However, I may have him confused with someone else.
