Bugs are on the D!

CCAS was out in full swing this past weekend with two trips on the books and some night time hunting for big browns after dark! First lets get to the report! If you are headed to the WBDE there is no need to be on the water before noon unless you want to fish streamers first thing in the morning. We witnessed good variety of mayflies including sulphurs, march browns, and a few green drakes! Best bet was to fish a emerging sulphur patterns in size 16. Toward evening spinner falls were sporadic but we did find fish working them. Once again a size 16 rust colored spinner was the most consistent producer. In the down time of the day we fished streamers to the banks and turned a surprising number of fish, although only two were brought to the boat, I'd say we had around 18-25 follows. Streamer conditions were less than ideal being sunny, windy and relative lower flow than we like to toss meat! However the action and the sight of 20+ inch browns following your streamer all the way to the boat is always welcome. CCAS embarked on some nocturnal floats with a buddy of ours. We fished the upper end of the river from 11pm to 2:30 am and had some amazing blowups on black divers. However only one 19" fish was brought in. The nighttime temp was hovering around the middle 30's so we feel the temp had a big reason why we didn't seen more fish. All in all it was a great experience and we may be offering these nocturnal floats soon. Hope to see you on the water soon!
