Water Conditions: Temp: aprox. 54˚
CFS: 110 to nearly 300 CFS today http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nc/nwis/uv?site_no=03446000
Hatches: still seeing some yellow sallies, tan caddis
Fly Suggestions: below the surface an olive soft hackle, bird’s nest [olive], or small Prince nymphs are a good bet, a bushy attractor, such as a yellow stimulator, or any of the Wulff patterns should draw a strike.
General Information: Jeff Curtis and I had the opportunity to serve as River Helpers for a group of Casting for Recovery participants this past Sunday and found that the West Fork had been well stocked! The fish have been spread around nicely by a group of Trout Unlimited volunteers, nicely done guys!
Projected Conditions: looks like the cooler temps will stick around for a bit longer, rain ending tomorrow with no appreciable precipitation till the first of next week. Remember “the best time to go fishing is whenever you can”!
