Large portions of the Big Wood may re-open this week, and if that happens, fisherman will find the water very low and clear.  Low and clear doesn’t mean un-fish able, in fact, it can mean really concentrated fish.  However they’ll be spooky and tougher than normal to fool.  Try a long, light leader, smaller fly, and a cautious approach.

The Big Wood is best early and late in the day. Though there are Pink Albert’s Flavs, and (the first few) Trico’s hatching, this is the season for classic attractor pattern dry/dropper … Read More

We’re right in the middle of prime early season fishing on Silver Creek.  Expect a mix of baetis (sometimes in substantial numbers -see attached video) and Pale Morning Dun’s.  Of course the word on every Silver Creek fisherman’s lips is “Trico’s”.  There’s a few around (not many yet), but if our HOT temperatures they could show up any day now … Read More
