River Report / Conditions – September 16, 2019

Flows on the West remain around 800cfs.  Bugs on the middle section of the river were sparse last night.  The main has definitely been the most consistent.  Swinging and Nymphing have been productive these last few weeks. The streamer bite isn’t as good as we were expecting for this time of year and flows/color.    […]

Flows on the West were bumped a few days ago to help reach target releases downstream. There has been a lot of lettuce in the water, which I’m hoping has settled down by now. Last year streamer fishing in late Summer with high flows was off the charts good. Tomorrow we get a bump in […]

Flows were bumped substantially yesterday on the West which brought a bunch of debris down with it. Most anglers opted for the Main and had good success. It seems the Trout are finally moving back into their normal lies on the Main. Be sure to have some Whitefly patterns if you plan to fish the […]

We are expected to get around an inch of rain today so the flows out of Cannonsville have been dropped to 450cfs.  Yesterday was a productive day on the water with lots of Olives. Reports from the Main have been hit or miss. The Upper Main down to Stockport is definitely getting the best action […]

A nearly double in release last night put the fish down and the debris was a p.i.t.a. to deal with.  Fishing today should be much better as its starting to drop and we have some good cloud coverage today with light and variable winds. The West and Upper Main are still very wadeable. I saw […]

I had the day off yesterday and decided to float the Lower West. Fishing was good. I had Olives as soon as I put in around 12:30pm, and they lasted all day. My main objective was to swing riffles, and it was very productive. I fished a tandem of 2 wets and a small streamer […]

For the amount of bugs on the water the dry fly fishing has been a little slow. We’re seeing a lot of smaller fish up on the surface. Swinging and nymphing has been productive and will continue to be for the rest of the season. The Upper Main has been safe the past couple days […]

The weekend forecast looks great with air temps in the mid to low 70’s. Bugs were a little slow yesterday, but we also had a big temp and barometric pressure change. If you try and fish the Upper Main, please be mindful of water temps and be sure to check with a stream thermometer.    […]

Trico’s on the Lower West were pretty strong yesterday. Olives and Iso’s were consistent throughout the day. The Upper West still has Sulphurs but the hatch is definitely tapering off. We have some nice cool weather ahead of us for the next 7 days. Should be a great weekend!  Hatching: Trico #20 – 24 BWO […]

The Lower West and lower part of the Upper East got dangerously warm yesterday with temps reaching just shy of 68. After today the weather seems to break and our over night temps drop back down into the 50’s. We are looking at some strong thunderstorms today.  The cloudiness should really get those Olives going.
