With the air getting warmer, so are our water bodies. I've had several inquiries about the Blitzen the past week. With the exception of the thunder storms pushing the stream up over 200 cfs a couple of times, the river is flowing in the mid-80 cfs range. Temperatures are mid- to upper 50's, to just below 70 degrees daytime, and rising with each passing day. If the trend continues, watch for warnings regarding stressed fish before too long.
And if you fish there, again....load up on mosquito repellant.
No recent reports from Chickahominy, however, I know some nice fish were caught there last week. Anticipate algae.
No reports from Krumbo.
Beulah is currently at 45% full, while Warm Springs is 53% this evening. No recent reports.
I haven't tossed a fly in a handful of weeks, however, did manage to bring this dude up from the depths. Unfortunately, I left the flies for surface black rockfish in the rig and didn't get a chance to cast to surface feeders last week. Maybe soon....
