Friday the 13th is lucky again! Clouds and rain have moved into the area, which should help keep the river levels up, temperatures down, and the bugs VERY happy! This has the potential to be the best weekend of the season thus far! Aside from a bit of a fiberglass hatch on the West Branch, the river has still be fishing well, even in the bright sunlight we experienced over the last few days. This influx of cooler, cloudier weather can be nothing but good!! On the shop this morning we had parlep spinners, hendrickson spinners, apple green caddis, and tan caddis – always a good sign!
