February Midge Hatches

February Midge Hatches

I was giving a spey casting lesson yesterday and as we were working on our snap-t cast we began to see a light midge hatch on the Eagle River. This immediately brought up a conversation about the heavy midge hatches in February. While many folks are still focused on skiing in February, fly fishermen know that it can be a great month to see some incredible midge hatches. The Eagle River and Roaring Fork tend to get thick midge hatches on warmer February days. These hatches can bring, what seems like, every fish in the river to the surface. When this happens the dry fly fishing is out of this world. Give us a call and we’ll get you on the water for some great February Fly Fishing. 970.368.5959.
