Delayed Harvest Stream Report 5-14-12

Updated Every Monday:   5-14-12

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”!
