May Fishing on the Yough

After four days of rowing anglers down the river, doing a little typing is a welcome break. All in all, the fishing has been pretty good from the driftboats, the catching too. Trout fishing being what it is, the high sun has not been playing in the anglers' favor, but the morning bite has been great. There have been tan caddis and bwo's in the a.m., and the subsurface version of both have been very productive.

Once the sun clears the mountain though, the bite has slowed, but persistence pays off—especially if you look for them in traditional mid-day spots. Shady lies, broken water, and pockets have all been providing some nice trout despite the sun.

Afternoons have provided some nice chances at larger trout looking for march browns. And yesterday I saw a few green drakes mid-day (we'll see how that develops). The spinner falls in the evening have fish looking up as well.

Flies: Nymphs: small flashbacks in 16-20, prince nymphs, caddis emergers, copper johns, march browns

Dries: attractor patterns, march browns, caddis, sparkle duns, crane flies

Streamers: buggers, sculpins, shad patters

Have fun out there and put em' back.
