Yough River: a little top; a little bottom

As everyone knows, the river is on the low side right now. The reservoir is so low in fact that there isn't even a scheduled release for this weekend. Whether that is a failure by the USACE to update their site or a sign of things to come remains to be seen as we have yet to contact anyone at the Army Corps about how this drought is going to affect the release schedule.

That being said, water temps on the middle are still good, even down through Ohiopyle--especially if, as happened today, we have a little cloud cover. On warm, sunny days though, if you're fishing that lower stretch of the middle Yough, be aware of the temps because the river will warm to around 70 in spots and there is no reason to stress those trout needlessly. All that aside, in spite of the warm weather and low water, the trout fishing on the middle has remained pretty solid.

As for the lower river, the water temps have been downright hot. I can't remember the last time I saw the water temperature in Connellsville climb over 80, but it did last week. Bass fishing has been great, and the overall size of the bass has been impressive as well.

As always, have fun out there.


A couple of nicer fish from last week:
