Ohiopyle Fly Fishing Report – Early May

Fly fishing here in the Ohiopyle area is really starting to pick up as water levels come back to seasonal norms and clarity gets better. Meadow Run and the Confluence section of the Yough River are really starting to get good. Grannom Caddis hatches are thick and plentiful every evening and bringing hungry spring trout to the surface.

I had a day fly fishing with Ryan McCauley. Ryan started the day giving me a very informative lesson. We went over fly fishing basics and then went into a detailed conversation about flies, equipment and fishing strategy. Next we practiced casting which allowed me to compare my equipment to some really good stuff they had for demo. After a great lunch at the cafe next door, we started out on the stream. The stream and scenery were so cool. Ryan had a great spot. This was lunker city. Trout were everywhere. I caught two and just missed a few more. I can't ask for more than a trip that was geared to my needs and worked out this well.
