River Report / Conditions – May 2, 2019

May 2, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

Despite some heavy wind gusts, the entire system fished well yesterday. Today should fish much better with less wind and 20* increase in Air temps. CDC Hendrickson emerges were the key to success for me yesterday.  The Upper East has been the slowest fishing as far as surface activity, but we expect that to change with the warming weather.  


Hendricksons – #12-14

Blue Quills (Paraleps) #16-18

BWO #16-20

Chimarra Caddis – Not very important as an Adult, but swinging little black soft hackles in riffs can be productive. #16 -18

Little Black/Brown Stoneflies – #14-18
