Sight Casting

Sight Casting

Sight casting both literally and figuratively (Photo).  Conditions change on the tributaries every day and so should your tactical approach to Steelhead fishing. When the water is Turbid (stained), conditions are much more forgiving in terms of your presentation of your fly. Floats or strike indicators...
Dry Fly Action on Western NY Inland Water

Dry Fly Action on Western NY Inland Water

Brown trout from Oatka Creek while fishing with Fly Fishing Chronicles Blogger, Liam. Hard to beat the excitement of a big steelhead hitting a swung fly, but I am a trout bum at heart.  For me, rising trout and exploring new inland water is just as rewarding as trekking through the tribs for big...

Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

  Yellow Buggers Casted From Rock Jetty After a guided trip with two customers on Sunday on Lake Ontario tributaries, I realized the rains had not produced as many fish in our local creeks as I had hoped for. Seeing pairs of giant Pike in the creek was a tell tale sign that it was the beginning...

A friend recently shared an interesting observation about Oak Orchard.  He commented that several years ago if he arrived on a weekend morning within half an hour of sunrise, then he would be one of the first cars in the parking lot.  That early timing would allow him to choose wherever he wanted to...
