River Report / Conditions – October 4, 2019

Fishing this past week has been day to day. We are still seeing Iso’s Whiteflies, Baetis, Caddis, and Cahills.  Streamer fishing on the West has been good for a fish or two.  Both Upper and Lower East are extremely low, and I haven’t gotten much of a report from there. At 130cfs @ Harvard, I’d […]

Dry fly fishing has been tough as of late. The beautiful bright sunny days don’t do much for us as far as surface action. The fish that have been up, have been on the smaller side. We are expecting an afternoon storm and cloud coverage which could really liven things up a bit.  Nymphing, swinging, […]

The bright sun has made dry fly fishing during the day a little tough.  nymphing and swinging during this time is the most productive. Dry dropper Iso rigs work well during this time also, just be sure to hit the riffs.  Cloudy days bring on great hatches of Olives and Iso’s.  I hit the Upper […]

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 […]
