9, Lehigh Report
On the Lehigh over the weekend there was a decent olive hatch
- sizes 18-24...but despite all the bugs, only two risers
observed all day. There was also a few caddis, some isos and
iso spinners. Flow was on the high side - close to two-grand
on the Lehighton gage - but very fishable via boat. Had to
target slower water/eddies/pockets and you had to get your
presentation down DEEP!!! If ya wanted to just catch fish...the
lehigh was HOT for smallies, with plenty coming to the boat...trout
are spotty though, standard fall on the Lehigh. Leaves are
about 60%. Next weekend should be 80%.
Looking upstream toward the Kittantiny Ridge
from the Walnutport area.
Going forward we have more trips coming up this weekend.
It should be interesting what Mother Nature brings our way
as there is talk of some pretty cold air and lots of wind.
