Clear Fork river, Ohio

by RonT
(Ohio)

Took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and fished the Clear Fork of the Mohican River in North Central Ohio. I grabbed my Zerosum 360,6:4 had headed out.

Black Stoneflies were out in small numbers, and I managed to convince a few (!)holdover stocker Browns that my pattern was close enough.
The hatch started about 1:30 PM and all fish were caught by 'fluttering' the fly to mimic ovipositing. Great day on the water.
Cheers,

Fun Day!

Ron,
It sounds like you had a fun day. I too have been enjoying catching some hold-over trout. They put up a much better fight and have been a little educated over the winter, so it makes for much more fun than the ones that just get planted. I don't think of trout and Ohio going together much. Do you fish for warm water species as well?

...not only Trout,....
by: Ron

It's Ohia after all. I do lots of crick fishin', which includes species from Chubs to Pickerel. Smallmouth Black Bass being he main target.
I am partial to surface hits on the 'bug du jour'. Black Stoneflies lately, June Bugs and Japanese Beetles soon, then 'Hoppers.
Cheers,
R
