It’s still hard for me to to believe that we’ve had such great early season fishing during the past two weeks. The river is at a nice steady 76 Cfs , ( we typically fish it from 55 to 225 CFs so if it moves a little over the weekend it should still be clear and very wadeable-just bring your rainjacket along. We’ve had warmer water this week after a gate change from the 55 foot level to the 10 foot level.With a little spillover, the river temps are now in the mid 40’s and climbing–think active fish!!!We’ve heard many enthusiastic reports of between 1/2 dozen to three dozen fish caught during some mid-week outings. With rain in the forecast this weekend, early morning nymphing should be very productive. Stop in and check out a few dynamite Hendrickson nymphs, (while they last) that are sure to move a few. Little black flies are still all the rage above Falls Rd and if you’d like to fish some”quieter” water give Bunkerhill RD. to York a shot and skate a Henryville Special through the riffles.Small traditional patterns like Mickey Finns are great for tricking the new rainbows that are trying hard to make a living between Upper Glencoe through Sparks RD.
