  • Ben Sheard River Report For 29-Aug-2015

    Today is starting out a bit cooler than the previous days with air temps in the low 50's and quite a bit of sun now and they are calling for some clouds throughout the afternoon. As far as the river flows and bugs everything is very consistent with a flow of 500 at Stilesville and temps in the low 40's, while down at Hale Eddy the flow is 566 and 47 degrees. The mainstem is right under 1,000 cfs and 61 degrees down at Lordville due to the cooler nights and is a good option for morning tricos or afternoon/evening fishing, especially if you get some cloud cover. We are still getting some Sulphurs up around Deposit and on the mid to lower West as well but the numbers are dwindling as the month goes on. Many times the hatches are pretty brief but offer some good opportunity while they're around. The Blue Winged Olives in size 18-24 have been picking up in the afternoons and are oftentimes coming off amongst the Sulphurs and the fish will be taking the smaller olives instead. We are also seeing some of the summer Cahills in size #14-16 with their spinners on most afternoons. The winged ants in size 18-24 have been around and are great flies to use as their are now stages to deal with, an ant is an ant and the fish eat them when presented correctly most times. The nymphing can also be very productive with small pheasant tails for the Cahills and Sulphurs and bigger ones for the Isos. Enjoy the cool, late-summer weather. Lotsa' luck

    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
