Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Woodstock Inn's Tip of the Week
The White River is low at 218 CFS which is up from last week.. Consider fishing a number of low water spots where the river changes and what used to be a channel/run is now the river. Lots of Mayflys including Light Cahills are starting to hatch but not a lot of top water feeding but with this recent heat the rises have increased. Plus some Rusty Spinners in the evening, most likely Hendrickson's or Red Quill. Reports of smallmouth bass are picking up. Check for Midweek and Weekend updates on Instagram/Facebook at @woodstockfishingguides. Small black and large brown Stoneflies are hatching, plus we saw some Isonychia over the weekend. Olive and Black buggers still prove to be king on the White. Pat's Rubber legs, Sexy Stones, Hares Ear and Kaufman Stones getting their attention. Great time to use some traditional and modern streamers. Pound the banks looking for lurking Browns with streamers (black, white, purple, yellow). Water Temps below 55: Streamers down deep with nymphs. Bigger flies tend to do well on the White. When water temps are above 55: Tan caddis, BWO's and caddis/BWO emergers have been productive. Prince Nymphs and Copper Johns behind olive Wooly Buggers. Stoneflies and Isonychia shells continue to be on the rocks. When the water warms up, there can be some dry fly action on stimulators, caddis and hooper-dropper rigs! Stimulators, Royal Stimulator and Parachute flies (Adams). Dropping an emerger (klinkhammer) behind a bigger dry or floaty terrestrial has been effective.

Techniques & Tips as of 6/21/21
Anything that resembles a Stonefly nymph or minnow. Whether you are swinging flies or nymphing deep holes getting down to the fish is probably still the most important technique with and without indicators. Reports of fish caught on Olive buggers, Wiggly Worms and big streamers. Consider fishing the tributaries like the brooks and branches and the mouths of these waters. And not to forget the floaters, floating this river is the best way to cover ground and pound the banks!
