Popular wisdom taked about wooly buggers, rabbit tail coneheads and all sorts of other specialities in brown, olive and especially chartreuse.

I tied on one of my Monomoy stealth clousers and they ripped it to shreds I guess they get selective at times but right now they'l hit anything.

What I did discover is that you really only get one or two shots, then they rapidly lose interest in your offering. I noticed this behavior with other species.

The power company has a release schedule set for low water morning and evening for the fly fishermen and high water during the main part of the day for the paddlers. The water does color up when they release so that may explain why chartreuse is such a popular color.

I saw very few fishermen on the water before 09:00 a.m. but that may change once the trout fishing gets going again.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
