Re: Cattaraugus Creek NY
If you haven't yet, tie some hares ears in black, and don't hesitate to add a flashback. I also use a Frenchie-like fly with an orange glass bead in the thorax collared with a partridge feather but the water MAY still be too high (which would have me sticking to bigger stones and flashy egg patterns when I'm not throwing obnoxious streamers). If the forecast holds you'll have a week for it to clear and that may be enough. I'm not going to say you're in trouble because it may drop. You'll also have the option of surrounding creeks which will be in better shape even if the Catt is blown out.
Working out a way to convince my university to allow me to hold my TA office hours on the nearby creek...
