WATCH: Five Flies for May 2022 with Umpqua's Russell Miller

Ivan Orsic / May 15, 2022

It's MAY and late spring is HERE! While there are great opportunities on our moving waters this time of year, this month we're talking about flyfishing our many productive stillwaters. Our big stillwater reservoirs are ice-free and the big trout that call them home are looking to gorge after a long winter. Leeches, scuds, chironomids, and dry flies can all put fish in the net on these big stillwaters.

In this month's episode, we welcome back crowd favorite Russell Miller to talk about a variety of ways to present and rig your flies for stillwater success through the season.

We also answered a couple of commenter questions about rigging, bug choice, and fishing techniques. If you have a question about June fishing (especially warmwater fly fishing) - leave a comment down below on the YouTube video. If we pick yours, you'll WIN a Trouts Prize Pack - including prizes from Rising Fish and Umpqua! We're stepping up our game in this regard and we're excited to show you what we have for your upcoming prize packs with a little help from some of our favorite brands.

For the month of May, the Five Flies are available at our Denver location and online.
