Hex Nymph This is a older fly pattern, but still productive on our local lakes. It may be fished with either a floating or intermediate line, depending on the stage of the hatch and the depth of the water.  Start an hour before the hatch with a slow sinking line.  You will often find trout patrolling near the bottom searching for active nymphs. When the first duns appear on the surface, switch to a floating line, but stay with the nymph for a while. Let the nymph sink to the...

Hexagenia Hatch Matcher Flies

Hex hatches offer big trout food. Hexagenia are to our local lakes what salmonflies are to the Deschutes and other Western Rivers. They have the power to bring the largest trout to the surface where they can be caught on dry flies.

Hexagenia are the largest mayflies which occur in the Pacific Northwest. Their nymphs burrow into silt of pure lakes. These hatches occur late June to early August.

There are four stages of this hatch that the angler should be aware of: nymph, emerger, dun and spinner.

Hex nymphs can start leaving their burrows as early as 7:00 in the evening and a nymph fished along the bottom can get some strikes. Major feeding activity at the surface is the last hour at dark.
