Water is great; rubber hatch is on
We made it through the heat wave with nothing lost but a few lbs. The fishing on the river right now is pretty solid, but it is summertime fishing. The mid-day bit can get a bit rough, and you really have to focus on shady or deep lies to get those mid-day eats.
The flows have been pretty stable over the past week and a half, which always heats things up in terms of the fishing on the Yough, and the water temps are great, only reaching 67 in O-pyle during the height of the heat wave. The mid-day ISOs have slowed a bit, but almost daily, despite the sun, we've been finding pods of fish working crane flies, small spinners, and whatever else they can find in the film. With these lower flows the fish are looking up a bit more readily than is typical, and big, bushy attractor style dries have been catching some nice fish as well. The last bit of bug-related news is that the hellgrammites have been on the move lately and imitations can get them on top and below.
We've been fishing bass all over the place on the river lately and the top-water bite has been really good especially early and late in the day.
Check out the new pics in the gallery from last week's fishing. You might notice some rafts in the background--it is summer after all.
