It has been very dry over the last couple weeks. As results water flows in our rivers and creeks have become lower than normal for this time of year. Fortunately this recent round of rain and cold water has come Just in time. Water flows are rising nicely and the cool weather has dropped water temperatures and slowed down the bug hatches. We do not want our bug hatch cycles end too soon.
All of our trout water is in pick bug hatch, there is caddis, sulfurous, March browns and the gray fox is starting to go. The warmer than normal whether has accelerated the bug hatch. The cool rainy weather we are having will definitely help slow the cycle down for at least a few days. All the hatches that we are having are mid to late afternoon evening hatches.  This is when you will find the most productive fishing, granted the weather it is not too hot. And of course do not forget the evening spinner falls, the last 2 to 3 hours of the day can be the best fishing of the whole day.
Oatka has been fishing very good for me this week. Keep in mind that because of bird damage from last winter, the fishing on Oatka is spotty. You will want to concentrate your efforts along the sections of Oatka where there’s been recent stocking taking place. A word of warning here, just because these fish got a head start at the fish hatchery, does not mean they are going to be easy. These fish have been in the creek for a few weeks and the hatches have been going on all this time. The trout have learned their lessons well. You will need to match the hatch and still need to make a very good presentation. Also in these sections of Oatka we have decent number of hold over fish from last season. These fish definitely have some size to them and are going to be very challenging to catch.
What else is going on with the fishing, Our off the grid Brook Trout fishing, there has been good caddis hatches and  a few different mayflies that I’ve never seen before coming off too. We have been having some good dry fly fishing on this water also. On the Salmon River, The Douglaston salmon run, stocked 450 brown trout this past week, over half the fish are 2 to 3-year-olds, fish up to 20 inches in length. The best part is the DSR does not receive much if any fishing pressure this time of year in you can access to property with a sharply reduced daily rate. Also on the Salmon River this rain has given the river a bump in water flow. We will need to get in the river a see if any Atlantic salmon have come in.
Not:
If you are interested or have questions about fishing the upper Genesee River, or the more adventurous outing. Exploring off the grid Brook Trout fishing. A long with this, I am now offering my evening hatch special for the local trout water, this is offered at a reduced rate. This is an excellent opportunity to get a fishing tune up.
