Hoppers

4 posts in this topic

I've seen a lot of juvenile grasshoppers jumpin' around. Hopefully we have good hopper fishing this summer.

This time of year is my favorite to get on-stream for trout. There's always cold water to be found if you look in the right places, and lots of bugs...and smaller crowds, if any people at all. cool.gif

i was useing an adams hopper as an indicator last week here on the west coast with an olive beadhead dropper. got three on the dropper but broke it off on a better fish. i tied on what i thought was a simmilar nymph. after my retie, the fish were all about the hopper. i think i may go strictly hopper this weekend cool.gif

Using my own version of a hopper pattern and using a bead-head hares ear as my dropper, the success rate was about even between the two flies. often twitching the hopper would induce a strike as well. next time out, im thinking of maybe adding a streamer behind my dropper nymph for the trout that seem to want a chase for their meals.
