PENNSYLVANIA: 15″ Plus Fish being Taken on Fly.

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

The Susquehanna River smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent this week with 15 -20 per day coming to the boat along with some hard fighting channel cats, and a few walleye as well.

Flyfishing has been good in certain areas with 15″ plus fish being taken on fly.

The good fishing is now through fall.

COLORADO: Anglers Can’t Wrong, Fly Fishing, Spin-Casting or Trolling

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Early June has brought a mixed outlook for anglers across the state. While stream fishermen bemoan high, discolored water almost everywhere, their still-water counterparts have been finding some of the best fishing of the entire year. On the downside, the annual spring runoff, fueled by an exceptionally heavy snowpack in almost every major river basin, is in full swing. With recent warm temperatures, free-flowing rivers have been rising daily. With continued warm weather in the immediate forecast, the trend is expected to continue.

The Colorado Water Conservation Board is monitoring streams and rivers on both sides of the Continental Divide, especially in the northern part of the state, and has warned of potential flooding in parts of the Yampa River drainage. The CWCB also is watching conditions on Front Range streams such as Clear Creek at Georgetown, the Big Thompson in Estes Park and the Cache La Poudre in the vicinity of Fort Collins and Greeley, and Denver Water has issued an advisory for unusually high flows expected in the Blue River below Dillon Dam.

With many tributary creeks also swollen with snowmelt, and even some streams below dams running high, the Frying Pan River below Ruedi Dam and the several tailwater sections of the South Platte at present offer the best prospects for stream fishing.

The scene is much brighter for lake fishermen. Water temperatures are slowly rising, and trout are active in the popular mid-elevation lakes and reservoirs. Anglers can hardly go wrong, whether fly fishing, spin-casting, trolling or fishing with a variety of baits, where permitted. Warmer weather also has opened up additional higher-elevation waters such as Steamboat Lake and Taylor Reservoir.

Though the season has been a bit delayed, trout are hungry there. As winter loosens its grip and additional segments of the high country become accessible, anglers are celebrating the hot times of ice-out fishing in a mountain setting. Early June also is a peak time for warmwater fishing. Water temperatures have climbed into an optimal range and the bite is on. Crappie have been active in northern Front Range impoundments such as Lonetree, Boedecker and Boyd reservoirs, as well as southeastern waters including John Martin Reservoir and Blue Lake (Adobe Creek
Reservoir).

In the southwest, Navajo Reservoir features good fishing for crappie. Fishing with live minnows and small jigs are favorite techniques for
crappie; brushy areas of a lake or the rip rap along a dam face are productive areas. Fishing for smallmouth bass has been consistently good at Horsetooth Reservoir. Boyd Reservoir offers both largemouth and smallmouth bass, and Pueblo Reservoir is a perennial favorite among bass fishermen. Walleyes, wipers, white bass, channel catfish and bluegills complete the list of Colorado’s common warmwater species.

With summer finally here, the time is right to catch some.

FLORIDA: Fly Fishing in St. Petersburg

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Fly fishing the Tampa Bay area has been great around the holiday.

Fishing around the bad weather we have been catching some nice redfish. All the fish have been sight fished over clear sandy bottom. We have also been spanking quality size trout from 17-22 inches working the deeper channels and flats on chartreuse clouser flies. The trout have been concentrated and once you find a few in an area you find plenty more.
A few trips this week once we found a hole they were in we caught trout on fly on almost every cast. I am looking forward to more blue sky days to get out there and fly fish for reds.

Get out there and wet a line! Happy New Year!!

PENNSYLVANIA: Susquehanna River Fly

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

The River has been like a yo yo up fluctuating up and down and conditions have not been ideal, combined with low air and water temps and high winds I’ve chosen to stay off the water a bit.

When the weather and river conditions settle down we will be back at em concentrating on walleye and smallmouth. The bite is slow and patience is key. There’s always the possibilty of a Musky or two to make there way to the boat this time of year as well.

Well the smallmouth bite has been good over the last couple months and soon the walleye bite will be On!

Conditions are key to getting some quallity eyes to the boat and if you hit it right we can have a very productive day of walleye, with some smaliies and maybe even a musky in the mix.

Get Bent and Sling Some String with us this winter!

PENNSYLVANIA: Susquehanna River Fly & Spin Fishing

Friday, September 17th, 2010

The Susquehanna River is Low and gin clear and some good size Smallmouth Bass have made it to the boat for clients my this week.

The fish have been decent size and put up a good fight. Numbers and sizes of fish will improve as fall approaches. Fall is also one of my favorite times to fly fish as they are readily willing to take a properly presented fly. Give us a call to Get Bent and Some String!

MONTANA: Fly Fishing

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Nearly all rivers in Southwest Montana are either currently fishable or within a few days.

The salmon flies are here and are now on the Upper Madison between Ruby and Ennis. I have also heard that they are in the Gallatin Canyon and we should see them on the Yellowstone soon. The Lower and Upper Madison have been fishing very well with nymphs, girdle bugs, sculpins and zonkers as a big fly trailed by lightning bugs or soft hackles have been productive.

Fish are still near banks but are beginning to venture out. On the Lower Mad they are already in the fast water with the warmer temps. The Ruby is now fishing great and the Yellowstone and Boulder are just days away from fishable levels. We expect some amazing attractor dry fly fishing to be just around the bend. A few are already picking up some fish on dries on the Upper Madison.
