Not much has changed over the past week. All of our river and streams in western New York are still locked up in ice or experiencing low water flows. The only open water is the Genesee River. Hear too, not much has changed. Keep in mind, if you intend to try and fish the Genesee River use caution due to shelf ice. On the upside, we do have a good and growing sown pack. Ones we have a good warm spell, everything will change for our Western New York Rivers and creeks. Keep in mind that this change will most likely happen very quickly.
Because of fishing conditions, I have been spending my fishing efforts on the Salmon River this past week. Fortunately we had a couple of, lack for a better term, some warmer days and were able to get on the water. Water flows on the Salmon River are at 285 CFS, and I suspect water flows are going to remain that way for some time to come. We have been fishing the upper river. This is ware we have found a very strong and consistent nymph bit going on. The fishing is not a slam-dunk situations, you need to be on your game with you’re nymph fishing techniques. We have to pay close attention to our leaders setups and indicator placements to make sure the drifts are absolutely perfect. For flies; we have been using a variety of size 8 to size 10 black stonefly nymphs.

Notes:
I do have a few notes to pass along, First we have finally posted three videos from Lost River Productions on my website. Please feel free to go to my website and have a look. Go to  jaypeckguides.com
