Shannon's 2015 Stocking Effort & River News . . .
Shannon's River Update: Flows remain decent and Thanksgiving is forecast to be a little warmer than usual. Eggs and midges get the nod. Get out and enjoy some great weather. Good time to be nymphing and maybe stripping a streamer. Trout maybe spreading out with higher flows fish pocket water and runs. Plenty of fish remain to be caught in area rivers. Good numbers of fish in the 13-22 inch class in area rivers plus some cagey holdovers. We stocked Califon Island Park with over 100 trout two weeks ago. These stockings also included any relevant TCA's. For a full explanation please visit the Division's website: www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/
All of our trout are purchased from Vern and Jeff Mancini at The Musky Hatchery in Asbury, NJ and are certified disease free. Thank you to all of our donors who have contributed so generously. Also, we are grateful for the support and assistance of Affinity Federal Credit Union in supporting our effort.

General Hatches, Fly Recommendations and Tips . . .
Hatch Update: Olives and caddis have been hatching in decent numbers the last few weeks. Look for that action to continue for a little longer. Late afternoon has seen the best dry fly action. Small emergers as well as egg midge tandems have been catching fish. Want to try a streamer? Buggers are hard to beat.
the day: Fish
tandem rigs to improve your nymphing success. Fish
nymphs and emergers or midges in tandem. I always
prefer to fish the larger fly first, but to each their own. The
easiest way is to tie the first fly on as usual then attach the
second by using a clinch knot tied to the bend of the first
fly. Space the flies about twenty inches apart. It is also a good idea to
balance your tandems by keeping them within a couple of hook sizes
of each other. Use enough weight to keep the flies just off the bottom
drifting slowly. Drag free drifts are a must now. Keep as little fly
line on the water as possible and pay attention! Strikes may be
subtle or fierce. If using a strike indicator, place it one and a half to
twice the depth of the water you are fishing from the first fly. Any
additional weight should be about six to eight inches from the first
fly. Streamers: Muddler
Buggers, Grey Ghost, Black Nose Dace,
and Zonkers if the water is off color. Work them slowly!
Note: I use larger nymphs and bead-heads when the water is higher and less weight when water drops. On the South Branch, use the heavier flies when the stream flow exceeds about 175-185 cfs.
