Comment: The riverís bottom structure is ideally suited for a wide variety of aquatic insects to include mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, and midges. There are also a lot of shrimp, scuds, and other crustaceans in the river. During the summer, grasshoppers, crickets, beetles, and ants that fall in from the side of the river substantially add to the types of insects that are available to the trout. The trout also feed on worms, minnows, and crayfish. Many dry, emerger, and nymph fly patterns work very well on the Cohocton. For the fly fisherman the main secret to success is matching the size, form, and color of the naturals the trout are feeding upon as closely as possible. Taking the time to look under a few rocks, observe what insects are in the air, and watch how the trout are feeding can substantially add to your level of success. During the summer when the water is very clear and relatively shallow it is very important to use a long leader, light tippet (6X or 7X), and careful approach. It also helps to use a thermometer to find the colder water where springs come into the river since trout often favor these locations.
