Youghiogheny Hatch report for early May

What’s Hatchenin’?

May 11, 2011

Stream conditions improve with each rainless day! All of the Yough tribs in Maryland & PA are at good levels and are running clear. The Yough iteself is high, but fishable. The color is good but levels make for tricky wading. Be safe. Remember your wading staff or fish Meadow Run, Dunbar, Laurel Hill or the Casselman.

Friday the 13th update: IT RAINED!! Ohiopyle received nearly 2″ of rain, which brought the tributaries up and turned everything muddy. The Yough itself is still holding well and might be the best fishable option for your weekend.



Water temps are running in the 50’s now, finally! This makes for good hatches and the warm days of later will cause all the hatches to be compressed into fewer weeks time. Look for and be ready to fish any or all of these:

BWO sz 18
Blue Quill sz 16
Quill Gordon sz 12-14
Hendrickenson sz 12-14
March Brown sz 12-14
Sulphurs sz 16
Caddis sz 14-18
