    Default How long does the sulfur hatch on the Clinch last?

    Does the sulfur hatch last on the Clinch until late June?

    Usually until the last week of May, so it is basically over now....


    Depends on the year and area of river. I can only speak to the lower section. Two years ago, it dwindled down in late June, but last year I still had sulfurs coming off in late July.....

    I have seen them last well into July, and I have seen them over by mid June. Never can tell.

    Sure it is fun, but there comes a time when fishing is actually much more difficult with them around versus times when the fish are keyed on midges. Just my humble opinion.

    I have found them up in to October and I have a nice picture of one on my Facebook page. I fished the lower end this morning for about an hour and there was a minimal release of nymphs due to the clouds. In normal conditions; I would expect them to hatch consistently in to the middle of June. However; I think this year will be a late season because of the extended high water levels. I would not be surprised to see them sporadically in July.

    Anyhow; catching them on a dry will work in our favor once the concentration thins out.

    Sure would like to see the sulphurs for a little while longer. Nice hatch today with the fish getting after them good for about an hour and a half. Caught five in a row in the slot today in a short time, then things slowed and the better fish seemed to dissapear. Lots of folks catching smaller fish on nymphs.

    Was there this morning/afternoon as well. Caught several on nymphs and broke one off on an emerger pattern.
