Fly Fishing Yellowstone - White Miller Caddisflies
The White Millers, or the Nectopsyche species of caddisflies, are hatching now on the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park. These insects can turn the trout on especially during the late afternoons and early evenings when the females are depositing their eggs on the water. You will see them mostly along the banks of the stream but they may dip down and touch the water to knock their eggs off just about anywhere.
Wherever you see the egg layers touching the water is where you want to fish imitations of the adult White Miller. If you see trout taking them or trying to get them in a certain area, I guess it goes without saying that is where you want your fly to land on the water.
There is nothing fancy about the way you need to present this fly. You can cast upstream, across stream or downstream anyway you can to get the fly to the places the activity is occurring. It doesn't matter much how it spats the water or how it drifts. I can't make mine fly off and touch the water repeatedly but I would if I could.
This is our "Perfect Fly" imitation of the White Miller. We think it is the best one available.
It has a foam body that is light green, cinnamon legs, and light whitish-cream wings and antennae. It floats high in the water and is easy to keep track of.
