I have been fishing the local trout streams over the last few days. All I can say is we've got bugs, the hatches are on. All of our trout streams including the Genesee River are in good fishing condition. At this time of the year we can fish from early morning until midnight and expect to have decent fishing. Morning fishing will be best done with nymph fishing. Start out with hare’s ears size 16 pheasant tails size 16, there is a lot of nymph in the drift of this size. If these flies are not working try various caddis mergers in size 14 and 16, after that just keep experimenting. The mid day fishing will be a mix of nymph and dry fly fishing. The same nymphs that we use in the morning will still be productive during the day. During the midday we will see gray foxes and March Browns starting to hatch. These tow mayflies are a mid-day hatch. You will not see a lot of bugs on the water at ones. However the trout are looking for the bugs. Fishing this hatch is about covering water. The more water you cover, potentially the more fish you can catch. The sulphurs hatch has been starting late afternoon, and when conditions are right followed by a spinner return. For now you can count on this happening and practically all of our trout waters. For more up-to-date information please go to my Facebook page. Note: I have time open for anybody interested in doing some trout fishing. This can be on the local trout streams or even possibly some of the new water that I am exploring at this time. Please feel free to give a call and we can talk about what is going on. Cell is 585-233-0436 or call the fly shop at 585-352-4775
