first night trip on the yough somewhat paid off.. this was my second time ever trying this but it really is fun
i usually do when i do fish the flat water but after doing a trip to the west branch and getting slapped in the face, i’ve only been fishing dries down here in SW PA. That one was on a sulphur believe it or not and then the sleeper fly for me has been a tan grass hopper.. i’ve been smoking fish on that and crippled elk hair caddis on the youghSwung wets?
it most certainly is with me too lol.. that river is dangerous enough during the day but where i was at its pretty flat so i just told myself i’d only do it with low flows and in easy wading waterThat's fantastic! I've fished the yough some and it's been a love hate relationship. I imagine night time fishing there can be tricky!
i’ve been hitting that pretty hard in the evenings i’m getting reconstructive on my acl and my surgery is the 26th so i’ve been driving out there several times a week after work to fish before i’m locked up for the rest of the summer.. i have to say though this summer has been the best i’ve ever done on the yough so farthat evening i got there later.. i wanna say a little past 530 PM then fished till about 10
If you want to catch the bigger one my thought would be stake out the day time likely haunt for an hour. Wait till dark, find the shallow flats on the side of the deep pool or more likely the tailout and swing a pair size 6-8 govenors through that tail out or swing and then slowly hand twist retrieve a wooly bugger or harvey pusher across a shallow flat with heterogeneous rock sizes.that evening i got there later.. i wanna say a little past 530 PM then fished till about 10
