Yough Report

Bassing on the lower river continues to be really good, and anyone we've had in days past who was generally proficient with the fly pole has had ridiculous numbers of eats in a days drift. Fish are taking flies on top, in the middle or on the bottom. There have been a lot of juvenile suckers around, and flies in that color scheme have been producing lots of fish.

I ran a solo trip on the middle Yough yesterday to see if I could get the trout figured out. I found a reasonable number of good fish, but they seem to be doing their eating very deep. Did a good bit of bug seining yesterday and the predominant bugs in the drift were varying species of caddis in the morning and the usual small mayflies in the afternoon. I did see a fish or two eat cicadas yesterday as well and have had several bass spit out cicadas in my boat, so if you feel like fishing a big bug, it's worth a try.

The boys at LHGS will be off the river for the week so have fun and stick some fish in our stead.

'till next time . . .
