North Catamount Fishing Report 7-16-2012

I have been getting reports that bugs are hatching and the fish are biting on North Cat.  A good starting place is off the rocks near the far side of the dam.  Callibaetis are coming off in the morning and fish are feeding so aggressive during the hatch that anglers are catching fish with dry fly imitations.  Go armed with larger Parachute Adams (14-16) for the topwater bite, and Bead Head Hare's Ear Nymphs and Pheasant Tails Nymphs both in that 14-16 size range.

As the morning progresses it wouldn't hurt to have a olive and black Bead Head Mini Leech set up on another rod.  All of these patterns and everything else you could possibly need to catch fish in relative solitude up on the "Peak" are available at Anglers Covey located at the edge of town right on the highway.  If you stop in along the way from six to eight a.m. you will get an additional twenty percent off flies.

Tight Lines!
