Summer flows

Another weekend brings another report, and the report is that summertime flows have finally arrived on the river. The river as of this writing is flowing at 839 cfs and will drop a bit on Monday as the USACE adjusts flow for the week. The water temps are good right now with the gauges reading 55 in C-fluence and topping out in the heat of the day at 66 in Ohiopyle. Fishing on the river has been good, with mornings and afternoons fishing best, as you would imagine.

Bugs on the river right now are tan caddis (16), crane flies (10-16), cahills (12-14), bwo's (18-24), and iso's (10), and the good news is that the fish have been on them pretty good. Nymphing and streamer fishing have been producing fish as well and the usual suspects will take fish underneath. Larger patterns in low light conditions and smaller stuff in the sun has been the ticket.

Finally, the bass bite is finally starting to shape up on the river, which is always nice.

In other news, we are thinking of changing our handle, check out the pics for the skinny.

Fished from 6pm to dark tonight. Ran into a few fish on nymphs and caught a couple on top. Slate Drakes were hatching nicely but didn't have too many risers. The water temperature above Ohiopyle was 66 degrees. Can't beat these flows for wading, hopefully we will get a big spinner fall soon...........
