The big hole behind the shop on the Neshannock is horrible for the caddis. You want faster water. I hit a hole not too far down that I saw consistent risers all day in about a 30 yard stretch. They typically hatch from the faster water and they lay their eggs there too.

I was there too, hatch was coming off nicely, like all have said. In the morning they were filming some reality show for some country network, they had guys almost elbow to elbow behaving the shop. They filmed for a couple hours and I saw a couple guys get fish subsurface.
Ryan I was fishing where you were talking about, the only risers were chubs. I fished from right above the bridge down to about 1/3rd of a mile. Talked to one guy that picked up a brown on top.
I fished a dry dropper and took a creeck chub on the dropper

I guess we'll have to do a newbie JAM there next year so I can show you guys the way! Downstream approach with some skittering works magically, just ask flipnfly.

Was this on Friday when you fished it, or did you fish it another time after that?

They were rising everywhere on Friday when I fished it. Even though I only landed 5 or so on top I hooked and missed tons of others. Lots of action. Now on Saturday even though it was pretty much snowing with caddis I saw very, very few rises all day everywhere I went. They just weren't having it no matter how much you were skittering the fly!lol Now subsurface was a different story....

I've caught my share of fish on caddis dries in the slow pool behind the shop in the past, but yep when fishing caddis you definitely want to target the faster water 90% of the time.

I know Ry was there Friday because I was going to meet him. Didn't go due to radar (don't trust that) But was glad I didn't go because my "wife" had car problems and had to take care of that. Anyhow, right before I left I was hanging behind the shop and Bob's brother was slaying fish on a prince nymph, saw him hook into 8 or 10. The guy right above him was drifting his rig all the way below him with not allot of luck. Reminded me of stream etiquette GG and I saw at the Steelhead Jam. LOL

Friday they were rising in the rain showers pretty consistently. Even when the showers chased us under the bridge we were picking out a few risers here and there. It sprinkled or a steady light rain on us the whole day and the fish were very active.

Yeah, and there were still risers even during the really heavy downpours that went through Friday! Just found it odd that there was virtually no topwater action Saturday despite all the bugs..
