Salmonflies on the Stone???

Josh with a handull of salmonfly nymphs from the town section

We’ve been getting lots of calls lately looking for big bugs and the answer is not yet… but soon.  We have seen plenty of both salmonfly and goldenstone nymphs but we haven’t seen any adults.  We haven’t seen any empty casings on the rocks or willows yet either, but our guess is by next week we’ll see some near Loch Leven or higher.  Yesterday water temperatures were pretty chilly and the streamer bite wasn’t very good.  Water temp is already on the rise however and the river is still on the drop so today could be pretty decent.  Clarity is good enough, probably around a foot in town and perhaps a little better in the valley.  We expect the river to dirty up again, however everyone is thinking the Stone will clear much earlier than previously predicted.  We all have our guesses but George thinks the we’ll be on the river by the first week of July…
