  • Ben Sheard River Report For 22-Aug-2015

    Posted on 22-Aug-2015 by Ben Sheard


    Today looks to be a nice day outside with a nice and cool morning today with an air temp in the low 50's. It looks like the upcoming weeks temps will be a bit cooler with highs in the 70's and lows in the upper 40's. The flows have been very consistent the last month in the mid 500's at Hale Eddy. The bugs have been consistent as well with the #18-20 Sulphurs still coming off in good numbers but really not as strong as it was a few weeks ago as we coming closer to the end of the hatch. Your best Sulphur hatches will be mid-day on the upper sections of the West, say between 1-5pm. The Light Cahills have still been showing up in decent numbers in the afternoon into evening hours in the #14 range. We are also seeing a few Isonychia around in size #12, more so on the lower sections of the West Branch. Blind-casting a nice Iso pattern has been a good tactic in the riffles of the lower West. There are a few tricos around on the lower West and upper mainstem first thing in the morning. Nymphing has been good with all of the above mayfly nymphs of choice. Lotsa' Luck

    We've got a nice, sunny Saturday morning on our hands for today and if you believe the weatherman we may get some clouds in the afternoon hours. The flows and bugs really haven't changed over the last two weeks. We are still looking at 500 cfs up top on the West Branch and down at Hale Eddy the flow is 560 cfs and 48 degrees, great water for mid-August. The upper East at Harvard is 150 cfs and 57 degrees but as you go lower you will need to watch the temp as most of the lower sections will be too warm for trout fishing. The mainstem is running around 1,000 cfs and can be fished early in the day but will warm up with the warmwater flow coming from the East. The upper West is getting some really good Sulphur hatches with a few bugs starting around noon and the peak of the hatch is usually mid-afternoon around 2-4pm. We are also still seeing pretty good numbers of #14 Light Cahills in the afternoons as well as #12 Isonychia. You are also likely to see some small, 18-24 Blue Winged Olives mixed in with the Sulphurs, especially if some clouds roll in later. The nymphing has also been very good with small pheasant tails, sulphur-specific nymphs and Iso's as well. Enjoy the weekend. Lotsa' Luck
