Open for the Season!

Apr 01, 2011 Comments Off by

Happy April Fool’s! We are officially open for the season here at the DRC, and mother nature has decided to play a little gag on us, dropping yet more snow here in Starlight. We only have a dusting for now, with a bit more to come. Give us a call if you are feeling that urge to get on the water – the weather might not cooperate, but we can still at least TALK fishing!

Insect / Fish Activity:

We are seeing little black stoneflies coming off in droves – with the low water temps the trout are a bit sluggish, but we are seeing some rises in Home Pool.

Only 1 Week Until We Open!

Mar 25, 2011 Comments Off by

We are getting close, only 7 days until we open the doors on the 2011 season! Old Man Winter hasn’t exactly given up, however, with a new 5″ falling here yesterday with another storm on the horizon. Let’s just hope there is enough snowpack to keep Cannonsville spilling well into May! Full, daily river reports will begin again in earnest starting April 1!

As for flows, the river is still high as a result of melt and spillage. The Hale Eddy gauge seems a bit low compared to what we are seeing out in front of the shop – but we have a good number 0f feeders between the club and the gauge. We are slowly dropping, but this recent precipitation might see another bump.
