This was an excellent multi-day trip on the Whitetop Laurel. The water is still pretty chilly, just over 40 degrees Fahrenheit. But the leaves are coming out, which tells me the soil is warming, so the water is soon to follow. The water level was a bit above normal but fairly clear. Midges were coming off all day, and Quill Gordons and small BWO parachutes were the trick in mid-afternoon. Deep-run stoneflies work well mid-day when the sun is high.
Hours on Water (Two-day Trip): 10
