Father’s Day Weekend Room Special June 15 – 17, 2018

Double Suites are $99 per night this weekend so bring the family! Call us at 570-635-5880 or email to book your room.

We had cloud cover all yesterday.  There were some caddis and sporadic mayflies out with some fish taking advantage of them on top.  But overall it was a good day for the wet fly and nymphers.  In the afternoon we found a lot of fish eating underneath and chasing emergers.  They would break the surface occasionally or eat off the top every five minutes or so.  Timing was more important than pattern.  The Green Drakes. March Browns, and Gray Fox came off as the sun dropped.  A lot of those emergers were being taken in the water column too.  They were eating off the top enough that if you covered them you could catch them.  People who stayed out real late were rewarded with coffin flies.  All of the rivers saw a minor bump in flow from last night’s rain. The water temperatures dropped on all of the rivers too, giving a lower starting points this morning.  We’re back to sunshine today with an air temp peaking around 72.
