Guys;

Haven't been able to get out even once yet in the Catskills! just wondering if anyones been out here yet and what they're seeing on the water. Couple of guys have told me they're seeing predominantly midges,black stones and some small olives but beyond that, havent heard anything else yet. Any Hendricksons been spotted?

I am North of you and it is only the little black stoneflies hatching. I am collecting and rearing so if you want insite as to who might be hatching send me a note. I will be on the water collecting every other day. My BWO's wing pads are at the minimum size so likely a week till their hatching starts.

We're still pretty frozen up here in northern lower MI. Steelheaders are out in force but there aren't even many fish in yet. Even small bodies of standing water still have ice cover! Walking along the lower Au Sable all I've seen is a few random midges. I haven't even been near a trout stream since October, but I would guess we're a good while before Hennie season. Which perhaps is good, maybe they'll be in full swing once our opener is here on the 27th...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

SW Lower Michigan: I got out for the first time last Friday, upper Rogue and near-perfect conditions considering the time of year- air temp 56* by 3 pm, partly cloudy, water level steady and clear @ 45*. Little Black Stoneflies (sz 16's) were falling and we had some really good fishing.

Sunday we waited until 4:00 pm when partial sun was forecast, zilch on any insects other than some scattered midges(?) we guessed a sz 22 or so, grey with an orange/red egg-sac on their butts.
We've got heavy rain for the next 4 days, 80-100% every day and 2+ inches by the time it ends. I'll be tying more BWO's and Sulphurs in the meantime.

Mack, things have thawed out a bit more in the last day or so, and we're geting a nice steady rain right now too. Oscoda does stay a bit colder than the surrounding areas - our flowers are a bit later in spring here than further inland. Look it up on Google Maps!

P.S. Hopefully I'll have a hatch report from the Rifle River within a couple of weeks...

I see you Jonathon, yeah you are a little bit north maybe a 1 1/2 hours
north of me if I went straight up. We now have your rain it arrived about
an hour ago. No flowers here nor green. But the redwing blackbirds have
been here for a week or so. I am in a city call burlington west of Toronto
put that in google maps.

How are you doing my friend ??
