Young Mike below started this week with our Intro trip the first day and after getting the basics down we put him on the pond & stream where he had an outstanding 2 days reeling in 17 nice hard fighting Rainbows. He has the kind of enthusiasm and persistence that will make him a top notch trout fisherman I guarantee. It's no small deal getting a 17'' Rainbow in fast water in the net I can tell you but Mike is one quick learner. Flyfishing teaches you some pretty special lessons that lasts for a lifetime.
04/24/2015 - High Water Levels-- Our larger streams and rivers are high, we need to a few more days for them to return to prime shape. Larger streams and rivers are finally clearing, fish are hitting dries on the clearing edges. Mountain headwaters are fishing excellent right now with higher flows.. April flows are some the best of the year. Get your nymphs down with some shot. We took some really nice Rainbows on caddis dries and nymphs last week. The outstanding 19'' Rainbow to the left went for a small tan caddis pattern yesterday.. Bath & Highland streams are in Excellent shape. Chance of rain each day this week. -- Quill Gordons, little Black Caddis, Tan Caddis, March Brown coming soon along with , Hendrickson, Blue Quill . Minnow imitations are working well also well with simple deaddrift and strip pause retrieve. We have trips available this month, e-mail or call us. We usually get back very quickly if we are not on the water.
April Outlook - April and its warmer temperatures brings out the best in flyfishing including great water flows, higher aquatic insect presence which sees higher trout activity and longer days to fish. Scenery adds its part as the redbud and other trees come on strong with some very appealing spring colors. Morels can be found along some streams usually mid-month on. Hatches on the smaller native brookie streams are ramping up, some of the best times this month fishing on them can be found after a hard shower. Tiny Black caddis should be on schedule for April 10 or so.Dry fly fishing ramps up big time from the mid-month on. Caddis, Quill Gordons, Hendricksons, Blue Quill hatching most of the month, Sulphers should be here around April 28.
