Draw down time on the Yough—October 2
It has its ups and downs. As many of you likely know (if you watch the gages), the river is warm right now and has been for weeks. We've been on the river the past three weekends, and with the temps as they are now, the morning and evening bites have been decent for trout, but mid-day trouting has been dead like big hair and spandex. On the upside, the levels are consistent, bass fishing is good, and big streamers have been and will continue to take good fish.
The upside is that fall air temps have finally arrived, and the Casselman is cooling down enough to bring the Yough temps back to a nice mark: 65 in Confluence this morning. If that keeps up the trout fishing will get hot quick.
There have been Isonychia and BWO hatches daily, and the evening rise has been pretty good despite warm water. Monday night was particularly buggy with nice spinner falls and a cream midge hatch that blotted out the sun like Biblical locusts. (Or had it just dropped behind the mountain?) Small flashbacks in the right sizes have been taking fish in well oxygenated water during the day, and streamers will always catch a few.
We'll have both boats on the water this Saturday and Sunday, and hopefully we'll be able to report some great streamer action next week.
Stay tuned for new river reports, and as always, have fun and be safe on the big river.
