We saw the 1st of the Green Drakes this week coming off about 4 PM. Great PMD hatches from noonish to 3 ish day to day and some baetis too. Besides all those mayfly’s there are a good number of Caddis hatching, some in the afternoon and going into the evening on warmer nights.
Rusty Spinners before dark will almost always be a good bet about an hour (or less) before dark.
Nymphing is good too with Golden Stones and Mr Peacock’s, trailing a mayfly or caddis nymph.
The Upper River from Allingham to the Headwaters opens next saturday May 23. It will be nice to see a few more miles of river open to enjoy.
