The spring midge hatches have started, in good numbers too, with all this warmer weather in Arizona, and no big storms on radar, the hatches should just get bigger and bigger from here on out.
For us fishermen this means shallow water nymphing and dry-dropper as the season progresses.
I just finished up two trips that had some of the best numbers I have had since December, and all on midges too. Zebra midge patterns of #16 and #18, black/silver, Lazer, purple/silver and a red larva midge we call the "Chop Special", have been the most sucessful patterns for me so far this year. Find the slower flat runs,I have always called these areas "the fall out water" as it is usually located at the bottom of the popular bars and is the tailing seam water from the main riffles on the river.
