  • Ben Sheard River Report For 26-May-2015

    Posted on 26-May-2015 by Ben Sheard


    Today started out warm with a temp in the upper 60's. There were some fish feeding since daybreak, both on the surface and down below. You may have to modify your gameplan if you're fishing over the next couple of days to deal with the heat of the mid day. Mornings and evenings will be your best bet unless you're hitting the upper West Branch with the cooler flows it provides. If you are up in the area to fish and don't go out in the early hours of the morning it is a big mistake. We are also getting into a situation where you need to check the water temps on the lower West, the whole East and the mainstem whenever you're fishing over the next few days - something responsible fishermen do whenever we get warm air temps and low flows, we face it every year. Overall the fishing remains pretty good with plenty of opportunity and lots of different bugs coming off. We are starting the day with some fish rising to some small caddis and leftover spinners during the first hours of the day. Later on in the day you could seen #12 March Browns, some #14 Grey Fox, #14-16 Sulpurs in the evenings, some drakes on the rivers where they live like lower West, East and main. We also have been getting good spinners on these warmer evenings. The nymph fishing has been very good for those who want to catch fish and not wait around for heads to show up. We may get some rain over the next few days but not enough to really effect the rivers. Lotsa luck

    Today started out much warmer than the previous week with a current air temp of 68 degrees and the high today is in the low 80's. The river levels are still about the same and it's pretty skinny throughout the system. The fishing and bug life has been pretty good lately on most of the river system. We are seeing many different bugs on the rivers with a little bit of everything that could be hatching has been showing up in some numbers. We've had March Browns 10-12, Grey Fox #14, Sulphurs in 14-16, BWO's in 18-20 and Green Drakes on the lower West, East and upper Mainstem. Have spinners of all of the above bugs ready when you go out. Nymphs like small pheasant tails, larger ones for the March Browns and wet flies have all been good producers in the riffles. We should have some good spinners tonight as last night was littered with many of them. Tomorrow morning the fishing should be good with the warmer nights and mornings. Look for leftover spinners and caddis. We may get a little more water via release as Montegue is getting low, near the minimum for down there. Lotsa' Luck
