WNY Fly Fishing Stream Report 6/15/2019

Jeff and Dale met me at my place for some dry fly action and for me to get some pics, the bugs were  coming nicely and Friday night they did very well at a old spot they haven't fished at in years, the next morning to was a spot that hasn't produced very well over the years, but this year it has good numbers of fish, nothing big but fun and a couple of wild browns in the mix. They were fishing caddis and cahills sizes 14 and 16 on 5X. We caught some bait fishermen in the no kill sections using a center pin outfit and you can see one of the hooks that broke off in the rainbows mouth.

 The bugs are plenty and the fish a little slow to take on top, but at least they are. Tom and Paul got into more than a few, the bugs coming off were cahills, caddis and the sulphers are starting as well. They got the vast majority of the fish on brown/grey caddis size 14/16 with a nymph dropper.

WNY Fly Fishing 6/1/2019

The fish are starting to look up finally, the hatches coming off were Caddis, Lt Cahills and some BWO's. the fish were taking very aggressively sometimes jumping way out of the water to take the flies, the rain will put them down for awhile, but the cooler water temps are helping out our friends.
