What’s Hatchenin on the Yough’?
April 14, 2011
Continuing rainfall will keep the Yough high and off color. Releases at the dam will taper off so you may find some success up at Confluence. The remainder of the Youghiogheny will be difficult to fish for opening day.
The tributaries (Casselman, Laurel Hill, Meadow Run & Dunbar), are dropping and clearing as of this posting. All should fish well by the weekend. Rain is in the forecast for Saturday.
A very late spring! Hatches are behind by a couple of weeks – you may see a few caddis along with brown stoneflies.
These are must have fly patterns:
Green Caddis larva sz 14-18
Pheasant Trail nymphs sz 16
Bead Head Prince Nymphs sz 14-18
Bead Head Black Wooly Buggers sz 8-10
Stop in to the Wilderness Voyageurs Outfitters Store next to the railroad tracks in Ohiopyle for your fly fishing needs or to tell us a lie.
If you are fishing the Yough near Friendsville, remember our Friendsville outfitter store has flies and terminal tackle available. Hours are normally based on days of whitewater releases from Deep Creek Lake. Call us at 800 272 4141 to check on hours.
We have also caught a few nice fish lately with big streamers sz 2-6
Tight Lines folks!
