I drifted from Hamlin to Silver Creek this previous Friday. It was a stunning bright day, and the river remains in ideal condition. Nymphing was strong all day with bigger stonefly replicas being finest. Hatches consisted of an enormous Grannom caddis introduction, March Browns, Blue Winged Olives and a couple ofSalmon flies I saw really couple of fish eating the surface area.
Boat landings above the dam that are open and tidied up post Vacation Fire Farm: EWEB Ramp, Helfrich Landing, Silver Creek, Finn Rock, Blue River, Hamlin, Bruckart. Closures consist of: Ben and Kay Doris and Rennie landing.
I had actually driven 126 post fire however this was my very first time drifting through the location and the destruction is stunning. There are 10s of countless trees that undoubtably will be eliminated so the landscape is most likely to alter even more. It’s challenging to explain the sensation you get drifting through the location. It’s exceptionally unfortunate for the house owners and companies in the location. The power of the fire and durability of the exposed surface if humbling. The river is still sensational and the fish are still really healthy.
