The release from Cannonsville was dropped back down to 415cfs. Cooler temps are forecast for the next few days with low over night temps. The entire West and Upper main is still the most consistent. Anglers who are up for the challenge of fishing the East with its low and clear water are being rewarded. Just remember to wade slow and […]

The West Branch got a much needed bump in flows yesterday. The release from Cannonsville is 665 cfs. Drakes continue to make their way up the West Branch, and  coffin flies have been producing at night regardless of them being present or not. Those willing to fish the East side have had success, but anglers […]

Mid day Sulphurs have been fishing well on the Lower West and Upper Main. Temps on the Lower East and Main have been reaching unsafe temperatures, so be sure to give those fish a rest. Fishing on the Upper West has picked up over the past few days which should help spread the Anglers out. The forecast for today is 80/57 with […]

Despite the windy conditions yesterday fishing was decent. Anglers had plenty of targets with Sulphurs being the main hatch. The East is still getting Green Drakes, but water conditions are less than ideal. We’ve been getting reports of  Green Drakes coming off throughout the day on the Lower West. The Upper Main towards the evening has been spotty, its been […]

The reports from yesterday were all positive. Anglers worked a bit, but they all seemed to get into fish. The upper West is starting to wake up as well. More reports of Sulphurs and of course Olives. Anglers are still reporting good Coffin falls on the upper Main and lower West. Caddis have still been a good choice towards […]

Mid day Sulphur hatches have been good on the lower West and upper Main. The East is low and clear, but Coffins have been falling at night making spooky fish a little easier to catch. The release from Cannonsville has been bumped up to 500cfs.   The forecast for today is calling for cloudy day with a high/low of 71/48 and light and […]

All the anglers  I spoke to yesterday reported tough fishing. Bugs where out, but fish never seemed to get on them. Hale Eddy down to Buckingham still seems to be the most consistent fishing. A few Green Drakes have been spotted on the Upper East, but nothing in fishable numbers to speak of. The forecast for […]

The Sulphurs have really taken way on the lower West and upper Main. Large Caddis (size 12) took a couple of fish last night. Isonychias are starting to hatch on the Main and lower West. The East has been low and clear, so make your 1st cast count. Bugs on the East side have been […]

The lower West has been starting to pick up as well with more sightings of Drakes. Sulphurs on the Main have been starting around 1:00pm and lasting throughout the […]

Another great night of Coffin flies on the Main. We have a plethora of bugs hatching at the moment, and fish haven’t seemed to mind what you put in front of them as long as the presentation is good. The West still had Hendricksons hatching yesterday so don’t leave your Hendo box behind just yet. […]
