Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Jay Aylward's Tip of the Week
WIth the cloud cover and high water we should be in the chew window for most of the day. I would be working all of the obvious spots with deep nymphs under an indicator. Stay moderate in size with your nymphs. Stonefly nymphs, Mayfly nymphs, and Caddis Larva nymphs have all been producing. Keep your eyes peel for risers, especially in the seems with eddy's that spinners and adults can congregate. We have been seeing Hendrickson, Quill Gordons, and a smattering of BWOs hatching. www.handmadeangler.com
