The average rainfall for April is a little more than 3 inches.  We are currently over 4.5 and it ain't over yet.

My reports and advice are for everyone to enjoy, not just the paying customers.

I saw a man and a boy fishing off the bridge near Sprice Creek last week.  I wonder if they even thought about how they were going to 1) land (bridge?) a fish if they caught one and 2)how they were going to release it unharmed (it is a C & R) area if they did get it up to them?

This sucks.
 
Had to fish for stocked trout yesterday for the two hour window when the water wasn't blown out or pouring rain.
 
Did I mention that this sucks?

We went to fish Elk Run the other day and it was cookin' prety good so we fished a stream on psu property. It is not classed and we didn't know what would happen. Caught a bunch of natives, none over 5 inches, and a few about an 1.5 inches.

I may try to sneak out Sunday morning to another no namer. It can get boring catching little ones in the woods but the technique is fun and the scenery is better. Nice to get out and see what untamed water holds.

I've actually have been doing well on the river, but it's tough being so restricted on where you can wade. The fish don't want to swim through all that current to come to the surface, so dry fly fishing hasn't been much of an option. May hit Spruce tomorrow evening if you guys are interested...

Not surprised considering it thunderstormed from about 2-5 am. Woke me up all night.


I see that the usgs gauge got some new shiny hand rails on it. Yeah, we're gonna shut down the gauge soon but we need hand rails on both sides of the four steps it takes to get to the entrance door. ..okay, I feel better now.

And you wondered where the $17,000 per year to operate it went.

If the water keeps rising, i'm gonna fish off the steps of the gauge station. Them handrails might come in handy. I just hope my fly line doesnt get tangled in them.

Its on the fall.  Last I looked it was down to 2,100.  At this rate with no more rain (like that is going to happen) it should be ideal for dry fly fishing by June.

All the grannom cases i've pulled off the rocks are empty. Looks like we'll be waiting til next year...

On the bright side, I've seen a couple sulphurs each day over the past 5 days.... wont be long.

Hopefully with the green up of the trees, the rain will have a lesser affect on water levels and the river will continue to come down.

It's gotta come down some time. Then it'll go more down, then more, then more.. then...120 cfs.

I hope the fish got to enjoy the grannoms.

Baby watching alllllll week. Maybe the weekend for me.


I really did fish the past two days. One was a trib around locke mtn. There were sulphurs but the fish weren't on them yet. They did like BH PT.

Last nite on the J we caught some on BH PT and got a few risers on tan caddis. There were a few duns late. I tried dearly to get a fish on an emerger after losing the last caddis I had but they weren't having it. We were about mid-river.

Teaburt was the original plan but after seeing the river at 465, no thank you.

I fished slightly above there for the last 45 minutes of the day yesterday. I'm sure you know where.  I was wading deep enough to get my chest pack wet much of the time. Eventually I took a step too far. I didn't take the water temp, but judging by how cold it felt running down my back I'd say it's around 32 degrees.

still seeing grannoms with a mixture of small green caddis here in the southwest.  Very little mayfly action.  Awaiting sulphurs, but did see a lone cahill tonight.  It's up top for the rest of the season until carp come into play. 

blow me a kiss w. mayflies drake.  I heard you were cute anyway.

i still hate all of you.
