Fishing report

How's Fishing?

Whether you were stripping crackle backs in zone 1 or drifting  a bobber and worm in zone three, it was probably in the rain if you were fishing this week. The last couple days has been wet but that doesn't mean the fishing was terrible. I spoke with several anglers this week that toughed it out and were pretty successful. Now on the other hand, I had a couple conversations with anglers that decided to wait for rain to be out of the forecast and stayed inside to perfect that fly pattern they had been working on. This weekend looks great and I don't think we have to worry about rain until the middle of next week so that's a positive.  If I was going to be fishing this weekend, I've heard good things about the black wooly worms, olive crackle backs and in zone three orange glitter Power Bait. I  hope everyone has a great weekend.

See you on the stream.

Quote of the week

“There will be days when the fishing is better than one’s most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home,” Roderick Haig Brown.
