Rivers North Fishing Report

May 26th, 2009

Memorial Day weekend for a change was some absolutely beautiful weather-daytime highs reached into the high 60’s and this sunshine provided some good insect activity.  A plethora of different aquatic insects were emerging making for a sort of bug buffet for the resident Trout to choose from!  The largest in numbers were Caddis-Trout have been seeing these bugs for a while now & some good fish are still coming up for them.  The Caddis is a stranger hatch due to the fact that they do not sit still on the surface like the Mayfly does.  Seems that many smaller Trout key into this hatch verses when a good emergence of mayflies are on the water lager Trout are more frequent to take advantage of the situation.  On the mayfly front- Hendricksons, Suplurs, BWO’s, and Mahoganies have been out; but none of which have been in significant numbers yet.  Water levels this season have been in a constant state of flux-they are high & then get normal & come up again.  If we could ever get a steady normal flow fishing would be outstanding.  Forecast is calling for more rain tomorrow, so expect rivers to be on the rise over the course of the next few days.
