Fly Fishing Conditions 7/23/14

Posted by Mike Kaz

The West Branch of the Ausable is low right now (expected rains will change this a bit on Wednesday) but we have dipped below average water levels over the last couple of days and with that and warmer air temps, mid-day water temps are closing in on 70 deg. PLEASE be cautious of spiking water temps and please fight and release fish quickly. OR, give the trout a break and head out for some Bass or Pike.

Fish large red or chartreuse poppers for Bass and large “gaudy” streamers for Pike.  Stay tuned for a blog post on Mountaineer.com about Bass and Pike Fishing.

BWO Parachutes 14-18, Yellow Stonefly Nymphs/Dries. Adams Parachutes 16-18.  BH HE Nymphs and PT Nymphs are productive as well as terrestrials in Beetles, Hoppers and Ants…fished over the undercuts near the riverbank.

World Famous FREE Casting Clinics Wednesday nights through the end of August…be sure to come by. All abilities welcome!

PLEASE CALL AHEAD IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON ATTENDING as summer storms/weather will have us postpone if needed. Thanks!
