Housy White Fly

The white fly hatch has been going gangbusters the entire length of the river this past couple of nights. Its currently starting just before dark (last night it was nearly 8:00 pm before it got going).

Trout are still stacked up in the refuges like cordwood but recent cool nights and lower water temps have tempted a few out.

Some of the biggest smallmouths of the season are putting in an appearance during the hatch.

I managed about half a dozen smallies plus a gorgeous brown of about 12 inches last night.

Nice to fish dry fly again after so many years!

The flies were coming off so thick as I waded back across the river I could hardly breath - everything they say about "blizzards" is true!. Oddly the fish activity had died down - maybe they were just stuffed full!
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
