July 13 Report.

Fishing the Middle right now is pretty darn good. We fished yesterday with a gentleman from Pittsburgh who could throw a line like nobody’s business. He caught the trout slam: catching a nice brown, bow, and brook on various nymphs, streamers, and dries. Sadly though, the elusive Youghiogheny yellow trout managed to elude him. We had one just about to take when a greedy little bow snatched the fly from his waiting maw. He also managed to catch his best PA trout ever, end he fishes places like Penns and the J regularly.

On the downside, water temps on the lower section of the float are getting a bit warm. Morning fishing and the first half of the float were great, but afternoon trouting in anything but highly oxygenated water was pretty slow--dead, in fact. At four in the afternoon and one mile above the take take out we took the water temp--a luke warm 69. So our advice is to fish early or late down there, or pull some big streamers for bass as those temps are conducive to the bass bite.

Bugs on the river right now are the usual summer suspects: Iso’s, BWOs, Caddis, crane flies, Yellow Drakes (spotty), and midges. Terrestrials are taking fish as well.

Streamers and nymphs continue to take fish with 2 1/2 to 4 inch patterns working best in streamers and nymphs to match daily bugs will get ‘em.

So if you'd like to come looking for your personal best PA trout--give us a call or shoot us an email--we'd be glad to go looking with you.

I'd post a pic of the gentleman's nice brown, but I just got a new mac and can't figure out how to adjust the size yet. You'll have to check the website.

Have fun,

A little early for warm temps isn't it, even down there? Especially since the summer has been so cool.

On the river again today, temp in Ohiopyle 66 at 5 pm on a cloudy day. Not bad. But you have to consider that the Casselman has been peaking at around 80 each day. That's a big charge of warm water. Add to that all the exposed mid-river rock getting charged by the sun all day and you're going to have warm temps. Any time the discharge gets below 600 this time of year that bottom section of the middle gets a bit sketchy with regard to temps.

It fished really well today until the storms came through--oddly enough. It shut down for about three hours until the sun came out--oddly enough again.

All said and done we had around fourty fish in the boat, with a third of the being bass.
