Rivers are receding and clearing after several downpours over the weekend. Stilesville remains at 534 cfs, with Hale Eddy at falling from 681cfs. Today we will have a mix of clouds and sun, with wind WNW @ 8-14 mph.
As of late, the most productive fishing has come in the evenings, as to be expected this time of year. Dorotheas are beginning to show, with March Browns, Grey Foxes, BWOs, and several species of caddis mixed in. Feeding soft hackles and caddis emergers to aggressive fish has been very effective. Make sure to have a stream thermometer handy when fishing the Lower East and Main, water temps have been reaching 70* and above in some areas.
The fly shop is now open for curbside pick-up and limited foot traffic. We are looking forward to seeing you all and hearing how your season has gone thus far.
Feel free to call the shop with any questions about products, current conditions, or guided trips which resumed on 5/15.
