Sulphurs, Caddis and More Sulphurs = Great Fishing

Got out a few times the last couple of days and the fishing in New Jersey waters continues to be as good as I've seen it in years. The late day Sulphur hatches have been thick and at dusk, the spinners have been turning on every trout in the river. Rises in every direction can really get your blood pumping. There have also been some serious caddis emergences and egg-laying falls in the A.M. and late afternoon into evening.

It helps that the weather has been perfect and virtually windless. I'm heading up to Canadensis, PA today to fish Bright Creek for the next couple of days. Report to follow. Here's a few pics from recent outings.

The barn cupola at the Raritan Inn and the half moon late in the evening after fishing the sulphur spinner fall on the property Saturday. A nice run on the South Branch downstream of Long Valley. It fished well throughout the length of the run. All fish rose to egg-laying caddis.
A nice rainbow taken on an egg-laying caddis from the above run. Looks like a heron or hawk took a swipe at this one. The fly is in the corner of the mouth.
Life is Good. Looks like we're going to get wet in PA, but if the fishing's fine, who cares.
