We received some much needed rain in the last couple of days. However the ground is so dry it just soaks it up with not much to improve water levels. The Magalloway was 62 degrees today with the flow staying at 350 cfs. We still caught fish on top this week and had some success with nymphs. Small tan caddis and BWO nymphs. No reports from the Rapid or Upper dam but these places usually are not very productive during the warm summer months. I walked into a remote section of the Cupsuptic yesterday and found the level very low. I still caught some pretty brookies hiding along the deeper banks and the water temp was 60 degrees. You can find success after rain events on ponds by fishing the mouths of brooks that run into them. This introduction of colder run off water can attract fish for a day or two. Feel free to stop in if you are in for advice if you are in the area.
