Yesterday was crazy with bugs! The Big Blue Wing Olives started and the Slate Drakes are really getting going and light Cahills are happening to join with the other massive variety of bugs that were already hatching! Bug Soup!
The water is perfect and the weather is beautiful.
The creek has returned to Wonderful condition! We can see all the way to the bottom from the bridge this morning. Fish are rising and bugs are flying! It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..
Blue Wing Olives
Giant Stone Flies
We had a pile thunderstorms but the water only came up a little bit. The creek has turned a murky green color but will be back to the same clear green by this afternoon. Yesterday was one of the best Dry Fly days of my career! The Drakes were heavy as all get out last night. Duns and spinners. The Drakes should last through the weekend.
The Green Drake hatch has been EPIC! The duns are still hatching from Cherry Run all the way up to Coburn. More and more females are emerging every day and the lower end is getting some great spinner falls with the coffin flies. Sulphurs and Grey Fox and Crane Flies and Caddis and even some March Browns still! BUG SOUP!
