I know everyone wants to fish over a Quill Gordon hatch, but I would make sure I had plenty of Blue Quill dries on hand. I have found trout prefer Blue Quills over Quill Gordons when they are hatching at the same time.


How are things looking down there? Are hatches progressing as expected?

Most of my QG experience is on the Beaverkill in the Catskills. They are a thrill to see hatching, but I've never seen much dry fly action with them. Since they hatch underwater, I get the impression a winged wet or softie would do better. When there is rising, it's been to the small black caddis or BQs.

email from Slate Run Tackle on 3/28

The largest numbers of flies are still the black stone,brown stone, and brown caddis in medium brown and a ginger brown. We've seen a few Quill Gordons,some Hendricksons,red quills,and March Browns - these hatches are still very light. The blue quill is present and seems to have been more abundant on Slate and Cedar. An angler was in the shop today who caught a small brownie on the surface with a black caddis (probably taken for a black stone fly). Light and dark midges are also abundant. Best activity is middle to late afternoon. And,the flies appear to be a larger size again this year.

yeah that report doesn't sound right. Even hendricksons sound early for this year. I know they hatched early last year but this has been a more normal year and I can't imagine march browns hatching right now.

We see these kinds of reports from Slate Run every year, it seems. I think it's just the normal sparse hatches going on. Doesn't mean the big hatches are early or anything. At least, that's what everyone tells me!

Yeah I wouldn't get in a twist. I'm sure that if anything is happening it's pretty sparse.

It's way too cold. Last year we were late for the QG (and right on time for the MB!!!!), and it was much warmer than it is this year.

The only flies I have seen are little black stones. As far as what Slate Run is saying....maybe a Quill Gordon or 2 but I really doubt that there are any March Browns.

She'll be ready for trips in the baby backpack soon. Just have to watch the back-cast. But I think you posted a video for taking hooks out so it'll be ok either way.

Start them on midges, take advantage of those tiny hand.
