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!
