Yough in total

Bass season is upon us here in the Yough watershed as the water temperatures on the lower river and some of the tributaries are warming to the point that our favorite green fish are getting happy and grabby. We've been running a few trips on the warm water in between trout outings and finding bass willing to chase everything from topwater offerings to crayfish hopped along the bottom. At least one out of every two bass we've caught have either spit up crayfish in the boat or have had crayfish in their mouths, so if in doubt, throw the lobster.

Trout fishing has been spotty of late on the Middle. The usual summer pattern has set in with good morning and evening fishing and mid-day shut downs. The Middle is still offering up some fine dry fly fishing at times with the morning and evening caddis (tan body/ mottled brown wing) that continue to hatch on the river daily. Isos are bringing fish up as well and the nymphs are getting fish every afternoon. As far as nymph rigs go, caddis in green and tan from 14 to 20 in the morning and Isos paired with bwos in 18-22 in the afternoon should get it done. Water temps have been trouty almost all the way down to Connellsville still and trout down that way have been eating nymphs very well and streamers greedily in the morning.

Throw in the odd carp, walleye, rafter, or beaver and you have a general idea of what's happening on the river right now from top to bottom.

Look for reports to continue after the holiday.

Happy 4th,

Great report. Going to fish the Middle Yough over the next few days. Have to stay close to the Outflow so....
I've fished there during a caddis hatch & did pretty well plus black ants did the trick.
Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

You pretty much have it covered with those two bugs near the dam. You might try some small mayfly of caddisfly emergers as droppers off the dry if you want to fish subsurface, but fishing nymph rigs is going to get you lots salad. Bigger terrestrials like beetles and hoppers should get you some fish as well.

Just got back. Had a great time teaching the wife to flyfish and managed to land a few on ants, caddis & then a trout decided to be a smart a$$ and hit my strike indicator while nymphing. haha.
Next trip...gonna float the Middle on my PAC800 & hit below Ramcat. (like the good old days)
Thanks for the info.
