Yough watershed update

The holiday weekend was a bust on the big river, so we found ourselves fishing several of the area tributaries, which we had mostly to ourselves, and finding plenty of happy trout on dry and dropper rigs.

Bugs on area tribs right now: green drakes, sallies (lime and yellow), tan caddis, crane flies, march browns, and a smattering of sulfurs. All of these bugs are around in decent numbers and the fish are finally starting to look up now that the water is dropping a bit. Dry fly and dropper rigs are all you need to get it done at the moment, though nymph rigs in the deeper runs will get you more fish.

The river is finally fishable again today. We'll be on it tomorrow and through the weekend, so we'll post a report as soon as we get back to the computer.

'till then,

the boys at LHGS

Four of us fished last night, and all four of us left feeling that the insect life on the Yough was as heavy as ever, each of the flies reported above was abundant, and the fish did work the top, but you had to pick your spots. I would say a very good evening of match the hatch on the Yough, left me looking forward to the season just starting on this tailwater.
