Yellow Creek, Bedford County, 03/19/2010

Fished in the FFO section from about 12 - 5PM

Warmish in high 50's/low 60's, sunny
Water Conditions: High water, turbid, maybe 10" visibility

Hatches: small BWO (approx size 20) came off decently in the afternoon, I only saw one riser though. I was never able to catch a bug to get a better size estimate. Also some sporadic midges.

Sadly the water was less than ideal. It was fishable, but as high as I've seen it on Yellow Creek. Much of the usually visible structure (i.e. big rocks) was under water, making it difficult to read the water.

My dad managed one fish on a black bugger, another fellow mentioned that he'd caught some on an olive bugger and bead-head nymphs.

If you don't mind working hard nymphing and streamer fishing the heavy water then you may get into some fish, but if if you are hoping to see rising fish on Yellow Creek (in the FFO section), maybe wait a bit before making the trip.

It was great to get out though - after a long winter!
