  • Ben Sheard River Report For 02-Aug-2015

    Well, we did get some good news this weekend that the issue with Cannonsville reservoir has been fixed. They are starting to lower the release down from 1,500 cfs gradually and the plan is to lower the release down to around 500 cfs. 500 cfs will be a great release that should make for some good fishing while conserving what is left of the reservoir's water which is now at 77 percent capacity. We should have some good wade fishing opportunities coming up in the next few days here as the levels drop. We will continue to see the same bugs we've been experiencing for the last few weeks. The Sulphurs should remain pretty strong for a while, especially on the upper half of the West Branch. We are still getting decent numbers of Light Cahills in with the afternoon Sulphurs as well as some sporadic Isonychia. With the water going down a bit the nymph fishing should pick up a bit as the slots and riffles tighten up a bit. This should be a good week to fish with temps dropping a bit mid-week with some cloud cover and light rain in the forecast. Lotsa' Luck

    The weather this morning is starting out nice with temps in the low 60's and a bit of cloud cover. The flows are pretty much what they have been with a nice cold flow of 1,500 on the West Branch and down on the mainstem it's gonna be around 2,000 cfs at the confluence. The temps on the whole West are excellent with the morning temp all the way at the end of West in Hancock at 45 degrees and down on the main you'll have good temps for most of the river where you'll be trout fishing. The upper East should be ok for a while but with the low release you'll have to watch where you fish it as it will warm up to unfishable temps fairly quickly as you get lower on the river. The bugs and fishing, especially on the West, is simply as good as you'll ever see it on this river. The Sulphur hatches have been phenomenal, starting around noon on most days, and continues 'till the evening hours when the fog usually rolls in around sunset. You will also see some good #14-16 Lt Cahill activity with the duns mixed in with the Sulphurs throughout the afternoon. The #12 Isonychia are also out and about in decent numbers and the fish are taking them. The fish are taking the Sulhpurs and can definitely be a bit choosey but if you fish up here much and know whats going on they're actually very easy with a decent fly and perfect presentation. The fish are in great shape with this volume of cold water and you are actually able to use a little heavier tippet even on the small flies. Enjoy the great weather and great fishing. Lotsa' Luck
