Chez, a good cigar will clear the air a bit, (not saying Parodi's are, j/k) I always bring some cigars for night fishing, helps keep the skeeters off you too.

Spent a couple hours catfishin in a new place. Slow but got a big fallfish and one 24 inch channel cat. I felt sorry for catching the cat, Its lower jaw was completely severed in half. No white flies.

This is gonna sound crazy but I've been mapping this progression.  The traces should be in Berwick by now.  I figure in a couple of days the beginning stretch will hit Shickshinny by Sunday.   

Given the bio scientific gurus that say they move 2-3 river miles per day, they should hit Cooperstown by Christmas.

LMFAO 

I'm ready to follow this hatch all the way to Cooperstown NY, let's film a documentary, who's with me?

I think before I pass I'd like to do a nice documentary following the white fly hatch all the way up the river, it might be interesting.   Too bad most of the action takes place after dark.

LOL yeah Chez, Fly by Night, that's basically what they do, not as big or as scary as the owl on the album cover though.

Taxidermyed and I saw the white flies tonight around the Hunlocks area, not a full out blizzard but a ton of them and it got cloudy with them for awhile.  We saw some rises and got some fish but not as many rises as I expected, maybe the lack of water clarity had something to do with it.

I was out last night in Falls area and the hatch was small and lack luster. There were no fish rising to eat dead flies. The bite was really good when it got dark on my 1/4 oz Joe's Fly gold and black. I got a few smaller ones before dark but the better fish really came on once the glow of sunset faded. I was barely crawling them along as they swung around with the current all the hits came right along the shore within 10 feet. They must be coming in to fill up on crawdads and minnows. I will be trying it again with a floating rapala to see if that works any better.

Almost forgot I missed my path back to my truck in the dark walked right by it cause I was saving battery in my head lamp for the woods. added a quarter mile to my hike. + lost my eye glasses taking off and on my fishing pack, good times lol

Black Raspberries were early this summer, and I will begin picking some black berries next week early also. I'm guessing that it is due to the mild winter last year. what I'm getting at is that the white flies may start to show up any day. The river is low and the temps are high for the perfect smallie storm.
