WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 7/5/2014

Tom and I went to the Oatka this morning hoping to get more top water action as we did the week before, the water was still off colored but lower. The dry fly fishing was lousy with only a handful of rises and a few bugs coming off, but nymphing saved the day. we caught all of the fish on small stoneflies, I used a small mercers golden stone while tom used a small black stone.  Then old rubber lips started in on the action and look at the monster tom landed on my 3wt Sage. We also found poison hemlock along the banks so be careful.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 6/29/2014

Tom and I went to the Oatka today for some dry action, the water was still stained and up a bit. The fishing was very good and the scenery even better!!!! we had lots of deer crossing the creek everywhere went. The fish were taking small caddis and ants and the action slowed down around 10 am.

WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 6/21/2014

I went back to the Genny this past weekend for some dry fly action and once again she didn't let me down. I got fish ranging from 4" to 17" and lost a true monster on the dry, one well over 22" that crushed my fly then after three head shakes broke off everything. I did well on beetles sizes 12-14 and small black caddis size 16-18.
