After the weekend, we’re starting to see a few risers midday.River conditions are excellent. -Flow is at 118 Cfs and the river is clear. Little black stoneflies, #18 and early brown stones #16 were spotted at Masemore Rd access.With water temps hovering around 39 F, It’s safe to say that more fish will be taken on beadheads and soft hackles this week than dries.If you’re starting early, bead head princes and zug bugs #14-16 are a good bet. If you’d rather fish dries, sleep in, eat an early lunch and get on the water around noon. Focus on shallow riffles and skate stonefly imitations sized#18-16, down and across and keep moving until you find one that wants to eat.
Note: Olive wooly buggers still outfish most flies out there, just remeber to move them SLOWLY along the bottom.
