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.

August fishing continues on as normal. We got slight bump in flows last night due to the rain/ runoff but that should come down fairly quickly today. We have a few days of hot weather so I would steer clear of the Upper Main. The Upper West in terms of consistent hatches is still the […]

Both Sulphur hatches (mid-day and evening) are still there, but not as heavy. The hatch is certainly fishable and bringing fish up, but there seems to be a lot of small fish. I received several reports yesterday from anglers fishing the evening on the mid/lower river and did  very well. Lot’s of Olives, some Cahills […]

The mid to lower river has been nymphing and swinging very well. The mid day Sulphur hatch is getting weak, but the higher up the better.  Olives and Iso’s have been good throughout the entire West.  Hatching: Trico #20 – 24 BWO #16-24 Sulphurs #14-18 Tan Caddis #16 – 18 Cahills #12-14 Isonychia #12 Click […]

Despite some wind yesterday the fishing was pretty good over all. We are still getting that mid day Sulphur hatch on the Upper West. I notice a good bit of fishing keying in on/eating the Tan Caddis coming off so be sure to have those ready as well. Anglers who fished the Lower West/ Upper […]

We had very strong but brief storms yesterday. It seems the ground soaked up most of it. The storms have been very localized so as you can see by the cfs’s some parts got a little more than others. Clarity this morning seems good throughout. The Upper West is still your best option for steady […]

Last nights rain gave a little bump in flows. We are expecting some more rain today so fingers crossed. Hatches are still better on the upper part of both systems. Early morning has been productive with garbage feeders, and early morning Olive Spinner falls. These can be tricky so keep an eye out for them. […]

We had excellent overnight temps.  The forecast for the week temperature wise is looking good. The heavy dryfly action/bug activity is still on the Upper Part of the West and East. The lower river is fishing very well with nymphs and swinging. Olives, Caddis, Isonychia, Cahills, and Tricos are all on the lower West, just […]
