It’s a bit early for big stoneflies to be moving. Give a week or so and the nymphs will begin showing up in good numbers along shorelines above the Chester backwaters. We’ll place info here on the stonefly hatch progress as soon as we receive it. Right now the river below Chester Dam-Fall River confluence is not good fishing because of Fall river’s run-off. Upstream there is some discolor especially above Ashton Reservoir. Currently nymphing and presenting streamers is the best way to find action almost everywhere the river is open to fishing above Chester.
