The much-anticipated annual emergence of October Caddis is in full swing here on the waters of the southern Valley.
These protein-packed bugs are not going unnoticed by the local trout and steelhead. While it is commonly assumed that steelhead aren’t “feeding” on their spawning migration, at this time of year, they reveal a true weakness for a juicy October Caddis pulsing on the surface. On a recent 3-day visit, Agua Boa Ace Angler and friend of Grover, Elizabeth P. scored perfect conditions and enjoyed great fishing and solitude. What a wonderful time to be in the Valley!
