  • Ben Sheard River Report For 21-Jul-2014

    Posted on 21-Jul-2014 by Ben Sheard


    The rivers are still in great shape throughout the system and have just got a bit lower and clearer since the last report. For this time or year, or any time for that matter, the rivers could not be in better shape. Fishermen who know what's going on are doing very well on a daily basis, mainly on dry flies. There is not a lot of getting lucky this time of year and there are no gimmie fish. If you stand in one area all day you and nothing happens till dark except maybe a few dinks it's your own fault, the fish and bugs won't come to you. You have to be smart about how you plan your day and take advantage of all opportunities to be successful. The mornings will usually offer some rising fish, maybe a bit spread out, but they are there probably eating small spinners or terrestrials. By early afternoon the Sulphurs in size 18-20 will be hatching in good numbers in the upper West Branch around the Deposit area. Droppers off of the Sulphurs may be required if the fish are feeding sub-surface. There have been good Light Cahills in size #14 throughout the system in the afternoon hours till dark and they are nice, big, highly-visible bugs that the fish like to eat. Same goes for big #10-12 Isonychia. Enjoy the fishing while it's good as it could change any day. Lotsa' Luck

    It's been a few days since the rains came through and the East Branch and mainstem are shaping up slowly but the West Branch is in perfect shape. For this time of year the fishing has been good to outstanding depending on the weather that you experience on a given day. It's very possible to have your best day of the year now if you hit the weather right. If it's bright and sunny the fishing is gonna be tougher but can still be very productive. We are seeing some bugs in the morning, usually small Olives and their spinners, leftover Sulphur spinners or terrestrials like ants or beetles. If the weather is right the fish may keep rising until you start to see some Sulphur activity in the early afternoon. The Light Cahills in size 14-16 have been around in pretty good numbers and the fish are eating them. Isonychia have been hatching in the afternoon as well and are great flies to prospect with in the moving water or to try on a difficult fish that won't eat your multiple Sulphur presentations. Lotsa' Luck
