Rivers around the state are in great shape right now. I say right now because we are head for a long, dry hot spell. Seems like the last couple of years we gone from frosty mornings to sweltering in a blink. No rain will be the bigger problem if the forecast holds. 

The picture above is what we live for as a guide. 
A young couple looking to get there 9 yo avid fisher to give fly fishing a shot. Brian Cadoret and Tom Carton did an exceptional job of showing them a fun time, learning how to catch, what could be the largest small mouth bass they may ever catch.

Trout fishing is starting to pick up. With great water conditions (temps right around 60)and much of the the states trout stocking program complete Memorial Day weekend should be outstanding.

It’s a pretty simple selection of flies for catching the smallies. Woolly Buggers and Clouser Minnows in black, white, olive and yellow. Some days other colors will work, buts 4 are standard.

Trout should start taking dries soon. The Hendricksons are  waining and being replaced with March Browns. March Browns are a large mayfly, sometimes coming off in size 10. Trout can turn down these sizable morsels. Tan caddis have also started to be plentiful in the evening. Mop flies, sparkle pupa, black stones nymphs and small woolly buggers have been killer recently.

Fathers Day is just around the corner. There is still plenty of time to book a guide or get a gift certificate for the man of the house.
