From just about any measurement criteria that you choose to look from, the current stream conditions in the Preston area are excellent. Water clarity is excellent, water temperatures are optimal, water flows are slightly below norm and air temps are scheduled to be mild this weekend.
Insect activity has been increasing as the temperatures have increased over the last week. There are a few Light Hendrickson duns coming off in the early afternoon and some increased caddis activity in the later afternoon hours. Soft hackle emerger patterns have also been working well.
Everyone knows that the real reason to go fishing is to enjoy Mother Nature’s Springtime beauty, this week is perfect for just that.
