Gray drakes are emerging evenings on the lower river. So far there does not seem to be the huge numbers like last year’s event. But there are enough of drakes to make a visit close to the Chester backwaters worthwhile. Look for flavs to begin emerging and attracting fish soon on the Harriman reach. Right now evening brown drake hatches are on going. The river at and just above the Wood Road 16 access is a prime location. With all the excitement over the progression of mayfly emergences here, most folks overlook that ant and beetle patterns can be effective just about any time. Enough said!
