The hot whether definitely is leaving its mark with the trout fishing. As predicted the bug hatch times did move back wall onto the evening hours. We also had a strong band of thunderstorms work through the area this past week. As result we will need to monitor water flows before heading on stream. Starting with Oatke Creek and surrounding smaller trout streams, the suffer hatch continues, Because of the heat most of the hatch activity has been pushed back to dark. Along with suffer and the suffer spinners there is also some caddis hatching and in a few spots we’re starting to see a mayfly known as a yellow Drake. We are getting a few fish using a variety of small nymphs and wet flies, while we’re waiting for the evening hatch activities. Flies we are using are as followed; size 16 hairs ear and pheasant tail. As for the wet flies, we are using a large variety pattern ranging in sizes from 16 to 14. we have not seen much of a preference for one pattern over another, long as it looks like some sort of emerging caddis. As for are bigger Trout Rivers, the same bug hatch pattern continues here too, most of the bug activity is around dark. For now the big bugs are over, however there is still a variety of caddis and even a few stonefly still hatching. The same wet fly techniques are producing fish during the day and into the early evening. Even though the water flows have come down and made dry fly fishing easier. We are still having decent luck with streamer fishing for some larger trout. Looking forward into next week, Weather prediction is not for as much heat. Hopefully the cooler weather will allow the bugs to come back earlier in the evening and extend our productive fishing window.

Just a reminder; I would like to mention that this coming weekend, June 24, will be the annual Spey Nation gathering at the Pineville boat access on the Salmon River. The mission is free and there’ll be a lunch provided for free for everyone who attends. I will be doing a casting demonstration at 9 AM in the morning. I get to lead off the demonstrations that day. Bring your waiters and try out all the new equipment. Also anyone that traveling any distance and may need lodging. I would suggest you contact the folks at the Douglaston salmon run. Right now they have the best deal going for lodging. You get a house for $60 per person a night this is there summer rate. The houses are very nice and they can accommodate and individual to a large group. This is my opinion the best lodging deals in town. You can contact the Douglas salmon run at 315-298-6672

* We will be heading to the upper Genesee river this is one of the best dry fly fishing rivers around in my opinion.
