The first 10 days of trout season at Roaring River State Park, have been pretty good. The dry fly fishing has been great.  We are catching trout on elk hair caddis and on blue wing olives.

The water is still flowing clear. The rains in the area have missed us, so it is still important that we use 2 or 3-pound fishing line right now. Plastic worms, plastic eggs, and rooster tails are still working great in zone one yellow worms are working very well while in the eggs white seems to ...be the best color, as far as rooster tails go dark colors seem to be working, best if you are flyfishing 6X Leaders work great for nymphs Wooly buggers and streamers if you are fishing Dry flies 9 foot 7X leaders are best.

Best dry flies right now are Adams, lt. Cahill, para adams, blue wing olives, & griffiths gnats.

If you are fishing nymphs, pheasant tails, zebra messages, Copper John's, Brassies, Gold ribbed hare's ears, and burlaps have all been working pretty good. San Juan worms, egg patterns, and mega worms have all been working very well. Good luck on the river.
