I hit the South River SRW this morning. Despite our recent rains, the water level was low. The water temp was ok, 66 degrees, but due to the low water, the streambed was covered with algae, complicating any subsurface fishing.

There was a slight midge hatch, but nothing else, and no riseforms in sight. So, I did fish subsurface, frequently removing algae from my flies. Did catch two rainbows, a bunch of fallfish, and 1 sunfish.
