October 15, 2012 - Late-Season Lehigh Report
Ha! I lied. Still in trout mode. No salt just yet!
On the Lehigh, there are bugs and there are fish rising. Of course this time of year, the window of opportunity is not entirely too large, but if you pick your spots you can cash in on some decent late-season dry fly action. Fish are being caught all the way down below Treichlers. Amazingly enough these fish look like they ate their way through the summer with no tell-tale signs of stress present. Just think how this fishery would be if we had coldwater all summer long!!!
I tell you what. With the current weather pattern, and the steadily dropping flow, the Lehigh should fish well for the forseeable future. The key is to look for those days with minimal wind and bright sun. This time of year the heat of the day is where it is at, and the hotter the better, even if there is bright sun.
