June 10 Yough Report

Fishing on the Middle continues to be pretty darn good. This last weekend, though, seemed to indicate that the river is making the turn into summer mode as the mid-day slow down (or death of fishing depending upon light level) and transition into summer hatches is happening now.

There are still fishable numbers of cahills and sulfurs in the evening, and perhaps a few march brown spinners and coffin flies around, but from here on out they will be fewer in number and morning caddis and crane flies, followed by afternoon bwos and isos will be the daily menu. Do not despair, however, because all this means is that predictable fishing will continue to these bugs throughout the remainder of the season. Other summer side dishes, of course, will get some fish as well.

What this really means though, for those of us who keep to the maxim, everything to its season, is that the smallmouth season has arrived. And with the increased number of warm-water skippers and boats in our lineup this season, we have plenty of availability for those who are looking for a day of unadulterated fun chasing anything from bass, to carp, to musky down low on the river.

So, (and as always) whether warm or cold-water gets you going, give us a call if you're looking for a good time.

I'm going on a camping trip down to ohiopyle next weekend and will be taking full advantage of fishing the Yough. I will more then likely be hitting the stream late mornings and/or early evenings. Any advice on particular flies for this far into summer?

I don't want to pre-empt YRG, but will say that the river from the dam above Confluence down to Ohiopyle is probably still pretty cold. That is, in the comfort zone for trout. And, there are surprising hatches somewhat "out-of-season" for other waters you may be familiar with.

BWOs, flying ants. light mayflies of several varieties, caddis from dark to light, and the midges, Lord, the midges.

Try a search of stream reports for "Yough" and look for threads started in mid- to late- July. You will probably see a lot of bugs mentioned.

It's a matter of degree.

In addition to the hatches Jack described, be prepared for ISO's (10-12), Light Cahill (14), and small sulphers (16-18). They have increased the outflow from the dam to 1440 CFS, so the river will be high, but clear and cold. Good luck!
