Mother's Day Caddis and "The Call"

Ed Engle says the time is now if you want to hit the peak of the Mother’s Day caddis hatch on the Arkansas and nearby rivers. “The key has always been that you want to get the higher water temperatures that will stimulate the hatch before you get the brunt of the runoff which raises, cools and dirties the water. It was beginning to look like we were going to have relatively clear water, but it was too cold for the hatch and by the time it warmed, the river would be high and muddy.” In the Boulder Daily Camera.
