I'm taking my two boys up to Broken Bow next weekend. We are super new to fly fishing and trout fishing.We've been up there a couple times and only caught a handful.
Just curious about what hatch to expect so I can pick up or tie some flies before we head up.

Was there Friday and Saturday. We only fished Spillway Creek because water temperatures at Evening Hole bridge were higher than what I will trout fish. I only did euro with some hopper-dropper. The chubs wore us out. Didn’t land a brown this trip but caught several par mark rainbows with a couple 17”-19”. Stop at the fly shop and buy a couple of flies they recommend (if you can. I know everyone’s financial situation is different). Good luck and enjoy.

Not too difficult there. Midges, woolly buggers, nymphs, eggs, San Juan worms and basically anything else you want to throw.

Small rs2s in grey or olive (in 18s or 20s), size 16 or 18 frenchie type beadhead nymph (a pheasant tail but without bothering with legs or wingcase because they're so small), one in pheasant tail for dark, one more like a hare's ear for a light version, some with hot spots, some without. I swing the rs2's at the evening hole, sometimes with a generalized larger attractor pattern like a red butt, no weight. UsualIy it's the little rs2 that gets eaten. I fish the beadheads all over. They work great under an indicator. Lately on Spillway Creek I've been tightlining a 25 foot leader.
