Trico Dry Fly Mayfly

Trico Mayflies (Tricorythodes) begin their hatch as early as June, with hatches extending through September. These minute (Size #18 - #24) mayflies often hatch late in the evening, or early in the morning, with spinner falls mid-day, offering all day action. Male spinners have black bodies, while females are shades of olive, black and brown.

When trico's are present, they are generally abundant. Because of the sheer abundance of available food, rising trout will seldom move laterally to eat. Use 6x or smaller tippet.

The Trico Mayfly (Tricorythodes Minutus) vary in size from #18 to #24. Males emerge in the evening, and spend the night in a local shrub along the river. Females hatch in the morning, and become spinners within several hours. While the females hatch, the males molt into spinners, forming a massive cloud of flying trout food. Trout will begin to feed on these tiny mayflies as they fall to the water, the females to lay eggs, the males, spent. The trick to catching fish during the trico hatch is to cast your fly in the exact feeding lane of a trout. Because of the sheer abundance of available food, rising trout will seldom move laterally to eat. Use 6x or smaller tippet.
