Speaking of flies. Just curious what people fish more of related to bugs. In Maine do you fish more caddis, or more mayflies, maybe it’s midges or stoneflies. I know river by river and time of year make a difference. But we all have favorites that we might try and “force feed” the fish.

Ron......

Definitely Caddis. In Maine, in Spring/very early summer, there’s probably a three week window that you can fish Mayflies( Hendrickson’s and Cornutas.......maybe Sulphur) but for most of the season, in Maine, Caddis is King. No question.

What Dave said. Although I would add that come late September to late October the caddis fade and the BWOs take over. Afternoons (2:00 - 4:00ish) can be fun. These pictures were taken on 10/25/13.


These mayflies were small. The BIG one would need a size 20 imitation.

Stones and Caddis for Maine.
One of my annual trips is defined by the stonefly hatch there. But timing isn’t always perfect

What Mike said. The box I keep that used to be filled with Adams, Blue Duns, and Hendricksons when I fished Shawmut a lot (and it was worth fishing), has been taken over by the various forms and sizes of BWO.

But that’s river fishing. Ponds are a different story. Those pond Brookies don’t seem that choosy. Royal Wulff or Royal Coachman work like catnip. Darned if I know what “bugs” they represent.

On the West Branch, I can very often outfish the caddis, during a caddis time, with a 16 purple haze. That being said the "hot mess" caddis was my caddis imitation for 2019. I am anxious to see what the 16 purple haze cripple does this year.
