The last round of rain had a positive effect on the water flows of practically all our trout streams. The only river that became unfashionable was the upper Genesee River. However I suspect by now this river should be in ideal fishing condition. Because of the goofy spring we have been experiencing, the hatches are out of their normal timing. When you head out to fish be prepared, depending on where you fish the fly hatches can be as much as three weeks ahead of schedule. The only stream that is running on schedule is Spring brook, you can almost set your watch on the timing of the hatches. As of now Spring brook has a size 18 blue wing Olives hatching. Along with the olives look for midges to be hatching and when all else fails try fishing a pink scud. As for everywhere else be prepared to see a light caddis which is coming off right now. But also have with you gray foxes, March Browns and sulfurs. The best time to fish, right now is mid afternoon until dusk. However as I always say the best time to fish is when we have a chance. If your opportunity to fish is in the mornings, consider fishing nymphs. I recently spent a couple of days back on the Salmon River. I was looking to see if any Atlantic salmon is moving into the Salmon River yet. I did observe a half a dozen fish over a couple of days. My suspicion is that they are just starting to enter the river. I will know more over the next couple of weeks. The real secret for the Salmon River is the growing population of resident big Brown trout. I'm talking about Browns well over 20 inches. However this is a big secret, so do not tell anybody. Also been doing some research fishing, dirty job but somebody has to do it. Looking at some small trout streams, that is producing some good rainbow and brook trout fishing. 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.
