We’re still waiting for the water temps to climb a bit more before fishing really takes off. The cold nights, releases, and spill are keeping the temperatures low.  We had reports of a few- very few upright wings mixed with the stoneflies on the West Branch yesterday.  Nothing was eating them.

Streamers fished slow are still your best bet to connect with a fish right now.  Hopefully the water warms up over the next week and the bugs really begin to pop.

Blue Quills- coming soon!
