Any reports of tricos yet? I'll be up there tomorrow and Sunday and heard they started on the lower WB, but have no idea where or what time...

I heard they were up there a few weeks back when we did our float. We started below the 17 bridge around Deposit and I don't believe they make it that far up river so we didn't see any.

Here's some reports....

The West Branch is clear with a decent release. Slop, crud or whatever you call it can be a problem at times-more so in the upper reaches. It did have a little color from storms yesterday but remained fishable even then. The upper area of the no-kill can get crowded at times-more so on the weekends. The release rate was decreased to 387 yesterday at 7 a.m. from 456 cfs on Wednesday. Hatches are usually mid to late afternoon with Sulphurs and small Olives. Some Tricos are about in the a.m. The East Branch remains at a steady flow with decent water temps. The hatches on this river vary more. Look for midges, small Olives and Tricos in the a.m. witth spinners, Sulphurs and Olives close to dark


DRC is saying that tricos are on the lower section of the river. 2 recent reports below.

7/22/10 report:
Rain overnight has brought higher flows and slightly cooler water all across the board today. These higher flows, combined with off-colored water and overcast skies, should be a perfect opportunity to bring out the streamers. Fish them as close to the bank as possible and be ready for a strike. However, don’t rule out the possibility of dry fly fishing as today could be another awesome day for BWO’s and Sulphurs on the West Branch. With lower-water clarity you may even be able to get away with throwing flies on 5 or 6X tippet. As always, work slowly and take your time when covering any section of water.

7/23/10 report:
Today looks like it is going to be a good morning with light rain and mild air temperatures. Although the rain may stick around for the better part of the day, today has potential to be a great olive day again throughout the afternoon, sulphurs should show up in good numbers during the day as well. Streamer fishing can be very good on rainy days like today, also keep a good eye out for Iso’s and Iso spinners. The West Branch is still flowing around 430 cfs at Hale Eddy which is a very good level for those looking to wade fish. With the cooler air temperatures and rain over the past couple of days, water temperatures look good on the entire West Branch.

There is never a need to go below 5x on that river! Have a nice day!

Floating in pontoon on the 30th 31st. Come on along.

Alpa,
Agree w/ staying above Hale Eddy for hatches unless you are looking a dusk. BTW, other guy wrote that tippet comment. I'll go to 6x with small olives or other tiny stuff. Otherwise, I stay w/ 5x.

If I have to go below 6x.... I go right to 12x!

Honestly, if you can't catch a picky / educated fish on 6x, something's wrong.

Guys- Stick with the 5x. Heck, go to 4x. Fish don't care.

When I get refusals from big fish on 5, I go to 6. When I get refusals from 6, I go to 7. Not hard to figure out.

If you have a good reel/drag (I use the ross evolutions) you can go to your backing with 7x. I rarely break one off. But you need a very good drag.

That is my opinion on the deal. On the WB you have clear water, older, smarter fish.

Glad I took a look at that link JerseyGeorge as I never thought of mounting my trolling motor on the casting platform. I will try that this week. May actually make the purchase of the platform worth it. LOL! I actually do use it on ponds/lakes but have not used it on moving water. I have not fished the D with that boat when the water levels were up and wading was possible. I am sure it will come in handy then.
